Romania and Israel’s Elbit sign four contracts for aircraft technology

Elbit Systems has won four contracts with the Romanian military to modernize helicopters, provide electronic warfare technologies, deliver systems to help search and rescue operations, and supply avionics suites for training aircraft.

The Israeli company signed two more contracts with European clients in early March, one of which was to provide Romania with unmanned turrets, remote weapon stations, and mortar systems, before making its announcement on Tuesday.

These contracts, which include follow-on contracts given after Elbit Systems was initially hired to upgrade helicopters and aircraft, “extend Elbit Systems’ track record delivering successful projects to the Romanian Armed Forces,” said Ran Kril, executive vice president of international marketing and business development for Elbit.

In February, a Russian missile fired at Ukraine crossed into Moldova, Romania’s neighbor, and got within 22 miles of the Romanian border. NATO had sent airborne warning and control system planes to Romania in January.

“from the moment the target was recognized until the full elucidation of this incident, the Romanian authorities have adopted all standard procedures. Also, at 10:38 a.m., two MiG-21 LanceR aircraft of the Romanian Air Forces, who were at the time conducting a flight exercise, were moved to the northern part of Romania in order to expand the options for retaliation.

One deal is for the installation of Elbit’s Spectro XR electro-optical system on Romania’s IAR 330 Puma maritime helicopters. According to the business, the contract work will be completed over the course of the upcoming year and comes after “a successful upgrading of the Romanian Navy’s IAR helicopters.”

Both during the day and at night, Spectro XR can operate, and its sensors enable imaging. For improved situational awareness, the business said it also has “continuous target scanning capabilities.”
