The contract will be performed over a two-year period, to be followed by three years of availability-based maintenance.
Elbit will supply of EHUD Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI) systems, to be operated from the Navy's shore bases as well as onboard aircraft carriers.

Elbit Systems is the Israel Defense Forces' training and simulation house and our continued investment in this area together with the extensive operational experience we have accumulated, enable us to stay well ahead of the curve, also to the benefit of our international customers."
