Elbit’s WiT receives African order


Israel’s Elbit Systems has been awarded a $40 million contract to supply its Wise Intelligent Technology (WiT) intelligence analysis and cyber defence system to an African country.

The order was announced yesterday and will see the WiT system being supplied within two years.

Elbit said WiT supports every stage of the intelligence process, including the collection of the data from multiple sources, databases and sensors, processing of the information, supporting intelligence personnel in the analysis and evaluation of the information and disseminating the intelligence to the intended recipient.

As delivered to the customer, WiT will be integrated with various data sources, including Elbit Systems’ Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) solution and Elbit Systems’ PC Surveillance Systems (PSS), a solution for covert intelligence gathering, the company said.
“We are proud to be selected to supply this unique system, which is already field-proven, fully operational and customizable,” said Yehuda (Udi) Vered, General Manager of Elbit Systems Land and C4I.
“Elbit Systems is a world leader in the fields of Intelligence Analysis and Cyber Defense, with proven solutions highly suitable for countries, armies and critical infrastructure sites. We hope that additional customers will follow in selecting our highly advanced and cutting edge systems in these fields as their preferred solution.”
