Elbit Systems' Subsidiary Ortek Completes Installation of its First Peripheral Coastal Security System

HAIFA, Israel, February 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Ortek Ltd., a subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd. , completed deployment of its first Peripheral Coastal Security system for a customer in Asia. Ortek's contract for the project is estimated at approximately $8 million. The deployment of the system is the first stage of the project, which also includes deployment of Peripheral Coastal Security systems at additional locations in the customer's country.

The Coastal Security system is remote controlled and allows its operators to automatically track a large number of vessels simultaneously, for dozens of miles, using its identification capabilities to send alerts regarding any type of threat those vessels may pose. Ortek's Coastal Security system is based on Elbit Systems' multi-layered capabilities as well as on advanced night vision sensors, daylight surveillance and laser rangefinders developed by Elbit Systems Electro-Optics ELOP Ltd. The system's surveillance, monitoring and control capabilities allow processing of online data received simultaneously from numerous surveillance pods. The integration and data analysis received from EO sensors in the control room enables a rapid alert and a suitable response to any type of port threat.

Eli Venezia, Managing Director, Ortek said: "Our Coastal Security system is unique in its ability to provide the customer with a comprehensive solution to meet the specific needs of defense against terrorist threats. There is an increasing global demand for these types of systems, and we are already involved in the integration of similar systems for customers in Europe and other worldwide locations. We hope that the unique technological solution Ortek provides for this project and the timely deployment of the system will enable us to secure additional coastal security projects."

Ortek integrates in its comprehensive solutions the range of existing capabilities of the Group, including products, comprehensive concepts, extensive experience and involvement in major projects both in Israel and abroad.
