Yokneam-based defense contractor Soltam Systems and Boeing Australia Limited have partnered to bid for a $500 million project for the Australian Defense Force, Soltam said Tuesday.
The two companies are seeking to jointly develop the Australian Army's indirect fire support system, known as Project Land 17. The bid is planned for the second half of 2006 and initial deliveries are expected to follow one year later.
Moshe Charash, General Manager of Soltam, said the partnership would offer the ADF integrated artillery solutions with state of the art 155m., 52 caliber artillery systems, which have a range of up to 41,000 meters.
