Elbit Systems has received a $305 million contract to supply Precise & Universal Launching System (PULS) artillery rocket systems to the Royal Netherlands Army.
The award is part of an agreement supporting the ongoing military cooperation between the Israeli and Dutch defense ministries.
As part of the contract, the company will deliver 20 PULS units mounted on Commit truck platforms over five years.
“The acquisition of Elbit Systems’ PULS solution will enhance the Royal Netherland Army’s ability to provide effective indirect fire support,” Elbit Systems CEO and President Bezhalel Machlis stated.
“It will also provide interoperability with NATO customers that have acquired these systems.”
Alongside the artilleries, the Dutch government will receive missiles and rockets with different ranges, training solutions, and support services.
“This contract further validates Elbit Systems’ cutting edge military technology and our strong partnerships with NATO countries across Europe,” Machlis added.
Elbit System’s PULS
PULS is built with an open architecture approach to comply with existing and future requirements of military partners.
The system is compatible with legacy command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence solutions.
Furthermore, the artillery can fire different warheads, including free-flying rockets and precision-guided missiles.
PULS can be mounted on different wheeled and tracked vehicles in addition to Commit trucks.
