Israeli high technology company Elbit Systems Ltd. (ESLT) announced Thursday that it has received a contract valued at $80 million to supply unmanned turrets for Armoured Fighting Vehicles or AFVs of an Asian-Pacific country.

The contract will be performed over a three-year period.

Under the contract, the company will supply 30mm-gun unmanned light turrets that integrate sensors and display systems for enhanced situational awareness, target acquisition capabilities, fire control systems and weapon systems of various types.
