The contract to be performed over two years carries a value of $11 million, Elbit said.
C4ISR is the acronym for command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance.
The C4ISR solution to be supplied includes interconnected coastal sensor towers, naval command centers and maritime C4I capabilities. Maintenance services will also be delivered by the Israeli company.
