FORT WORTH, Texas, October 20, 2013
FORT WORTH, Texas, October 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Earlier this year, Elbit Systems of America, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Elbit Systems Ltd., was awarded a contract for TC-100L amplifiers as part of a
weight reduction initiative for the US Army's OH-58 Kiowa Warrior. Deliveries
of the TC-100L SATCOM amplifiers are scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2013.
With a team of experienced engineers and a highly qualified work force, Elbit
Systems of America designs, manufactures, and maintains their advanced
communications amplifier product line in Fort Worth, Texas, delivering
hundreds of high power amplifiers to the US Navy, Air Force, and Army each
year. Since 2010, on an existing Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity
contract with the Army's Aviation Applied Technology Directorate, Elbit has
delivered over 300 TC-100D SATCOM amplifiers for the Army's Special Operations
rotary wing platforms.
"Elbit Systems of America has years of experience providing integrated
solutions for the Army's rotary-wing fleet, which includes the OH-58, AH-64,
CH-47, and the UH-60. Our engineers understand the importance of designing to
solve size and weight challenges," says Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of
Elbit Systems of America. "If it is a concern for the pilot, it is a concern
for us. We are committed to providing advanced and reliable communications
technology in small, lightweight, compact enclosures to meet the needs of our
Recognizing the need to add capability while minimizing platform weight, Elbit
also developed a dual-channel communications amplifier that supports the
Army's legacy (ARC-201) radios along with the new Joint Tactical Radio
System's (JTRS) airborne radios running SRW & WNW waveforms. Elbit's
dual-channel avionic amplifier is smaller and lighter than the Army's current
IFM amplifier and provides additional JTRS capability, allowing the Army to
field new technology, maintain current capability, and reduce platform weight.
