Israel-based defense firm Elbit Systems has announced that its Swedish subsidiary has been awarded a contract to supply combat management systems (CMS) to the Royal Swedish Navy.
Under the contract, Elbit Systems Sweden will integrate its Albatross CMS into the Sparo-class mine countermeasures (MCM) vessels currently in use by the Swedish Navy.
According to the company, Albatross is a scalable open architecture CMS that enables military operators to receive a common operational picture correlating underwater detection and surface tracks using real-time data, live video streaming, and imagery data.
The system reportedly expands the vessel’s operational capabilities, increases flexibility, and enables effective decision-making of operators during MCM operations.
“We appreciate the trust placed by the Swedish Defense Material Administration and the Swedish Armed Forces in our solutions,” Elbit Systems Sweden general manager Tobias Wennberg explained in a press release.
“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.”
Although the precise value of the agreement was not disclosed, Elbit said that work on the contract will be conducted over 34 months.
