: 03 March, 2009  (Company News)
Elbit Systems Ltd. has announced that its subsidiary, Elbit Security Systems ELSEC, was awarded two Airport defense contracts.
The first project calls for the upgrade of the security system in a European international airport.

The international airport project includes the upgrade of the existing electronic systems, a new control room and the training of the technical and security teams. The Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PID) will include an active fence technology, long- and medium-range day and night surveillance systems, checkpoints and Command & Control systems.

The second contract calls for the supply of Perimeter Intrusion Detection systems for three central airports in another country. The systems base on active fence technology, day and night surveillance systems, and Command & Control systems.

Both contracts are valued at several million dollars.

ELSEC is also the developer, integrator and supplier of the 'Code Positive' system to the Israeli Ministry of Transportation. The system increases civil aviation safety levels by identifying aircraft and pilots nearing Israel who are under threat of a terror attack.

Uri Dobkin, ELSEC General Manager, said: 'Our selection for these airport security projects reflects once more Elbit Systems' leadership in this emerging field. We expect that the globally increasing demand for integrated homeland security solutions, as well as our accumulating experience, will create more opportunities already in the near future.'
