Elbit Systems wins $102 mln U.S. Army mortar fire systems deal

TEL AVIV, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Israeli defence electronics firm Elbit Systems said on Thursday its American subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America, won a deal worth as much as $102 million from the United States Army to provide and maintain mortar fire control systems.

The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, if fully ordered, will be carried out over five years.

Elbit said the shipment of mortar fire control systems - both mounted and dismounted - along with a lightweight handheld mortar ballistic computer, will improve the accuracy of mortars.

In November, Elbit won a five-year contract worth as much as $103 million for the production of mortar weapons systems for the U.S. Army. (Reporting by Yuval Ben-David; Editing by Steven Scheer)
