Nir-Or, a subsidiary of IMCO Group, has announced that it has been selected to provide cutting-edge situational awareness technology to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for use in their armoured bulldozers.
The innovative system, designed to improve the bulldozers’ operational capabilities, includes a video matrix, operator display, and hatch controller. The system is capable of seamlessly integrating various video feeds from the vehicle’s systems, providing operators with a consolidated and clear view of the surroundings, and enhancing their situational awareness while inside the armored vehicle.
With touch-screen technology, Nir-Or’s Video Management System empowers operators with complete control over the vehicle’s actions within its environment, optimizing operational efficiency and enhancing the safety of the vehicle’s operation.
Nir-Or will collaborate with its American sister company, ADTi, to develop and manufacture the system. The deliveries are expected to continue until 2025, ensuring a gradual implementation and integration of the advanced situational awareness systems across the IDF’s armoured bulldozer fleet.
The total value of the transaction is estimated to be approximately 10.8 million NIS. IMCO Group expects to secure future orders for comparable systems tailored to additional armored military bulldozers, with an approximate value of 4 million NIS.
Nir-Or CEO, Mr. Tamir Ziv said: “Nir-Or takes pride in contributing to enhancing the IDF’s operational capabilities through cutting-edge technology solutions that meet the IDF’s rigorous operational requirements. This project showcases the company’s dedication to innovation and its commitment to providing the armed forces with advanced tools that ensure their safety and effectiveness on the field.”
IMCO Industries CEO, Mr. Ariel Kandel said: “Combining the abilities of our subsidiary companies, IMCO Group delivers cutting-edge defense technology solutions designed to meet the needs of modern defense. We are proud to be a leading supplier of the IDF, and provide innovative defense solutions that bolster their operational capabilities and safety”.
