HAIFA, ISRAEL (BNS): Elbit Systems Ltd. has been awarded an $18.6 million to upgrade the Romanian Air Force's C-130 Hercules transport aircraft.

According to the contract, the C-130 aircraft will be installed with various types of advanced electronic systems, including those produced by Elbit Systems' wholly owned subsidiary - Elisra Electronic Systems Ltd.

"The global demand for transport aircraft upgrades and the experience we have accumulated in performing various similar projects, including for the Korean C-130 and the Brazilian C-95, position us as market leaders, and we hope other similar projects will follow," Yoram Shmuely, Co-General Manager of Elbit Systems' Aerospace Division, was quoted as saying in the company news release.

Elbit Systems will collaborate with Romanian Aeronautical Industry and other local companies in the four-year project.

Elbit Systems noted that it has been operating in Romania for the past 15 years and executes large scale projects, especially in avionics, in cooperation with many defense industries in Romania, including IAR BRASOV, Avioane Craiova, Aerostar and others. These programs have been performed for the Romanian Ministry of Defense and for other customers in Romania, as well as for customers in other countries. Elbit Systems' activities in Romania are primarily carried out through its wholly-owned Romanian subsidiaries, Elbit Systeme S.A., A-E Electronics S.A, Elmet International SRL and Simultec SRL.
