Israel Aerospace Industries Gets Contract For Ehud Training Kit

Israel Aerospace Industries' MLM division has received a $13 million contract to supply Elbit Systems with components for its Ehud air combat manoeuvring instrumentation system.

The award supports a follow-on deal recently placed with Elbit by an undisclosed Asian air force.

  The Ehud system supports live training sorties by providing real-time, high-fidelity weapon simulation, hit/miss assessment and debriefing capabilities. IAI says it can also enhance flight safety by providing anti-collision warnings.
Under the deal, MLM will provide systems for use during air-to-air and air-to-ground training, plus the technology for a future live virtual and constructive training mode.

"This follow-on order reflects the customer's satisfaction," says MLM general manager Uri Sinai.

Ehud systems are currently used by the air forces of 18 European and Asian countries.
