Israeli company Elbit Systems‘ Swedish subsidiary, Elbit Systems Sweden AB, has been awarded a contract from the Swedish Defence Material Administration (“FMV”) to supply the Albatross Combat Management Systems (CMS) for the Royal Swedish Navy.
The contract, which is in an amount that is not material to Elbit Systems, will be performed over a period of 34 months. The system has been developed by the Israeli company based on the operational experience of the Israeli navy. It allows combined maritime forces to perform complicated missions that require full coordination.
Elbit Systems Sweden will supply the Albatross CMS for the Spårö Class Mine Countermeasures (MCM) Vessels of the Royal Swedish Navy. Albatross is a scalable open architecture CMS that is based on the Company’s E-CIX platform.
Elbit says that the Albatross CMS enables commanders and operators to receive a common operational picture correlating underwater detection and surface tracks, based on real-time data, live video streaming and imagery data, thereby expanding the operational envelop, increasing flexibility and enabling effective decision making during MCM missions.
“We appreciate the trust placed by the Swedish Defense Material Administration and the Swedish Armed Forces in our solutions,” said Tobias Wennberg, General Manager of Elbit Systems Sweden. “Elbit Systems sees a growing demand for its naval portfolio, with this award joining recent contract awards from maritime customers across Europe and Asia Pacific.”
