The arrangement is focused on validating and integrating new technologies on combat vehicle systems to deliver advanced warfighting capabilities.
 
Whilst BAE Systems is involved in the design, integration, production and support of innovative combat vehicles, Elbit America is engaged in the design and integration of advanced turret solutions. This teaming arrangement will explore crew automation, vehicle protection systems, and other defensive and offensive systems for integration into turrets of various cannon calibers and supporting weapon systems for combat vehicles.
 
“BAE Systems and Elbit America are investing in transformational combat vehicle technologies and turret solutions that will greatly enhance the lethality and survivability of next-generation combat vehicles for the US and international militaries,” said Jim Miller, director of business development at BAE Systems. “Our relationship demonstrates a commitment to provide our customers with solutions for future battlefields based on our collective combat vehicle expertise.”
 
BAE Systems and Elbit America will leverage their comprehensive experience for the evaluation, demonstration, and validation of multiple mission payloads and capabilities for the next generation of combat systems.
 
“The Elbit America team is excited to partner with BAE Systems and for the opportunities that come with that relationship,” said Ridge Sower, vice president of ground combat and precision targeting at Elbit Systems of America. “Our broad portfolio of mission-enhancing solutions and technologies, coupled with BAE Systems’ proven track record for providing highly effective combat systems, will greatly benefit warfighters as they face new challenges and needs.”
