Elbit Systems announced on Thursday that as part of an agreement between the Israeli Ministry of Defense and the Netherlands Ministry of Defense, it was awarded a contract worth $305 million to supply Precise and Universal Launching System (PULS) artillery rocket systems to the Royal Netherlands Army.
The contract will be fulfilled over a period of five years. Under the contract, Elbit Systems will supply 20 PULS artillery rocket systems integrated with the COMMIT (previously DMO) selected truck platform, as well as rockets and missiles of various ranges, and training and support services.
PULS supports the firing of both free-flying rockets and precision-guided rockets and missiles ranging from 12 km and up to 300 km. The PULS launcher is a fully adaptable launching system and can be mounted on a broad range of wheeled and tracked platforms.
“The acquisition of Elbit Systems' PULS solution will enhance the Royal Netherland Army's ability to provide effective indirect fire support. It will also provide interoperability with NATO customers that have acquired these systems,” said Bezhalel (Butzi) Machlis, president and CEO of Elbit Systems.
