The $19 million project covers 2,000 square kilometers, including the Punta Del Este tourist resort.

Elbit Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq: ESLT; TASE: ESLT) has won a contract worth approximately $19 million from the Maldonado District Administration in Uruguay, to provide a Safe District project. The project will span six municipal authorities, including the Punta Del Este tourist resort, a total of 2,000 square kilometers. The contract will be performed by Elbit Systems subsidiary Elbit Security Systems Ltd. (ELSEC) over a two-year period.

The Safe District project will deploy more than 1,000 cameras and sensors, including vehicle traffic control, at strategic points. The information gathered by the cameras will be transferred to a control center, which will have C2 (command and control) systems with unique analytical capabilities. The sensors and cameras infrastructure will allow the operators of the control room to obtain real-time data from the field and alert law enforcement agencies as necessary.

Elbit Systems ISTAR Divisions general manager Elad Aharonson said, “We are proud to have won this Safe District contract, demonstrating our Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance and Homeland Security capabilities. I hope that more customers with similar needs will follow the Maldonado District and will choose our unique operational solution as the means of maintaining the security of both tourists and residents.”
