Elbit Systems Ltd. has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Elbit Systems of America, LLC, has been selected as part of an industry team led by Rockwell Collins for the system integration and prototype phase of the Ground Soldier Ensemble (GSE) program for the U.S. Army.


Elbit Systems of America and Rockwell Collins together formed “Team Spartan”, The team was selected, as one of three teams, in a competition among several U.S. companies to develop the next-generation soldier-worn computer system. The system will provide situational awareness to soldiers during intense operations in a configuration that optimizes size, weight and power and can be customized for different missions.


Elbit Systems of America will leverage its global soldier systems experience and lessons learned in rugged military computing technologies, including the battle-proven, soldier-worn Dominator® computing system, to bring required computing capability to the program. Elbit Systems of America’s computing platforms support mission planning, situational awareness, target handling and device connectivity, as well as video and map displays.


“Team Spartan represents an excellent combination of companies, skills and combat systems experiences,” stated Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of Elbit Systems of America. “Together with Rockwell Collins and Boeing we will provide our country’s front line men and women superior situational awareness and information superiority in a way that ensures they can execute their missions effectively and come back safely.”
