Elbit Systems Ltd. On Thursday announced it was awarded a contract from the Brazilian Marine Corps to supply advanced radio and communication systems – Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR), and Electronic Warfare (EW). The contract, worth approximately $40 million, will be performed over a two-year period.
The contract calls for the supply of cutting-edge technologies and operational capabilities, including a variety of Battle Management Systems (BMS) applications, C4I systems for artillery, latest generation of C4I Soldier suit, and advanced EW capabilities.
The systems will be available in fixed and deployed command centers and in vehicles/APCs and dismounted configurations – aimed at significantly enhancing the Marine forces’ operational effectiveness, and aligning the Brazilians with the most modern NCW (Network Centric Warfare) concept.

Elbit Systems is a global leader in the fields of C4ISR, EW, radio and communications, and our systems are based on decades of operational use, combat proven by many customers worldwide. I trust that this unique solution will lead to other projects with the BMC, as well as with other customers.”
