JERUSALEM - Israel's largest traded defence contractor Elbit Systems said on Wednesday it had won a $15.6 million contract from the U.S. Marine Corps.

The company said its Elbit Systems of America unit would equip U.S. Marines attack helicopters with its Tactical Video Data Link (TVDL) system.

The system will provide U.S. Marine helicopter pilots with live video and targeting information, which they can transmit to other aircraft and ground forces. It will be operational on U.S. Marine helicopters by the end of 2010.

Elbit Systems of America President Raanan Horowitz said the TVDL would greatly enhance situational awarness and dissemination of valuable sensor information to Marine pilots. (Reporting by Joseph Nasr)
