The Israeli defense company Elbit Systems has announced that its Swedish subsidiary has been awarded a contract to supply combat command systems (CMS) to the Royal Swedish Navy.
According to the agreement, Elbit Systems Sweden will integrate its Albatross CMS in the Sparo-rated mine countermeasure vessels (MCM) currently used by the Swedish Navy.
According to the company, Albatross is a scalable CMS with open architecture that enables military operators to receive a common operational image that correlates underwater detection and surface tracking using real-time data, live video streaming and image data.
The system reportedly expands the ship’s operational capacity, increases flexibility and enables effective decision-making for operators during MCM operations.
“We appreciate the trust from the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration and the Swedish Armed Forces for our solutions”, says Elbit Systems Sweden’s CEO Tobias Wennberg explained in a press release. “Elbit Systems is seeing a growing demand for its marine portfolio, with this award joining the latest contract awards from maritime customers across Europe and Asia Pacific.”
Although the exact value of the agreement was not revealed, Elbit said that work on the agreement will continue for 34 months.
