U.S. Subsidiary Of Elbit Systems Awarded $45.5 Million ID/IQ Contract

Will Provide Night Targeting System Upgrade For AH-1W Cobra Helicopters

The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, Crane, Indiana has awarded a $45.5 million Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract to Elbit Systems of America, LLC, for the supply of the Night Targeting System Upgrade (NTSU) and associated line items for the AH - 1W Cobra helicopters.


Elbit Systems Night Targeting System

Work will be performed in Merrimack, New Hampshire and is expected to be completed over the next five years.  

The NTSU system builds upon the legacy of the combat-proven Night Targeting System (NTS). The improvements in the optics allow the warfighter a significant increase in ability to detect, recognize, identify and prosecute targets at stand-off ranges in all weather and lighting conditions.
