The systems will be supplied by the end of 2018. The contract is in an amount that is not material to Elbit Systems.

This fully integrated, end-to-end system is based on GTI's Towed Acoustic Target, which has already been delivered to other Defence customers.

It consists of an acoustic projector body, winch, handling package and power amplifier and will be used to test sonar systems for the ROK Navy's Harbor Underwater Surveillance System.
