Israel’s Elbit to make land surveillance system for Cyprus
JERUSALEM — The governments of Israel and Cyprus signed an agreement Thursday to develop a land surveillance system that would see Elbit Systems create the platform.
The deal was signed by Yair Kulas, the head of the Israel Defense Ministry’s Directorate for International Defense Cooperation, known as SIBAT, and his Cypriot counterpart.
The Israeli ministry would not provide more information, including the contract value. But Lt. Col. Christos Pieris, a spokesperson for the Cypriot Defence Ministry, was quoted by Bloomberg as saying the system would be developed over three years for a value of $32 million. Elbit would not confirm that information.
