Elbit Systems Secures $50 Million Contract for its "Red Sky" air defense system, which was supposedly used by Israeli forces to Intercept Iranian drones during the latter's missile and drone attack a fortnight ago.

The contract will be executed over a period of 2 years.

The Red Sky is a Tactical Very Short-range Air Defense (VSHORAD) System designed to provide protection against low-altitude aerial threats.

As part of the contract, Elbit Systems will supply two Red Sky batteries, offering a solution that integrates both soft-kill and hard-kill defense capabilities. This solution includes Elbit Systems’ Redrone, an electronic warfare (EW) solution designed for detecting, identifying, locating and neutralizing unmanned aerial systems. The Redrone system comprises DAiR Radar, Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) sensors, RF Jammer, and COAPS-L electro-optical (EO) payload. Additionally, the Red Sky solution will incorporate anti-aircraft missile launchers.
