Elbit Systems will supply dozens of observation systems to several Asian customers for maritime patrol aircraft, vessels and observation towers.

Under the contracts, worth $20m, the company’s subsidiary, Elbit Systems Electro-Optics Elop will deliver a wide range of payloads from the CoMPASS family, including Micro CoMPASS and DCoMPASS.

DCoMPASS is installed on patrol aircraft, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), coastguard vessels and frigates, and provides users with high-resolution digital imagery, day and night.

The Micro CoMPASS is a lightweight electro-optical system and is optimised for small unmanned air vehicles and other platforms.
