Elbit Systems was awarded an approximately $15 million initial contract from the Dutch Ministry of Defense to supply XACT nv32 micro night vision monocular systems for the Netherlands Armed Forces.
The initial contract will be performed over a period of two-years, with the potential for additional follow-on orders over a period of seven-years. This contract award joins previous contracts in the Netherlands in the fields of digital soldier systems and network-combat warfare systems, most notably for the VOSS program.
Compact and light weight, with a flip-up head/helmet adapter, XACT nv32 provides high resolution images under adverse conditions while minimizing Line-Of-Sight deviation and is suitable for mounted and dismounted soldiers, Special Forces and law-enforcement teams. Elbit Systems’ XACT product family is already operational with a number of NATO countries, including Germany, as well as with the Israeli and the Australian Armed Forces.
Elad Aharonson, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR, commented: “This contract award follows a number of important contracts awarded to Elbit Systems in recent years in the Netherlands. We see the Netherlands as a key market for Elbit Systems, and we intend to continue strengthening our local industrial cooperation and investments in the Netherlands in the years to come”.
