ISRAEL. Elbit Systems of America subsidiary, Kollsman, Inc., was awarded a Prototype Project via the Sensors Communications and Electronics Consortium (SCEC) Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) held by SOSSEC, Inc. for the development of the Multi-Domain User Sensor Architecture (MDUSA) targeting system in support of the U.S. Army.

The company's solution will enable the dismounted soldier to prosecute targets with true handheld targeting, while increasing situational awareness in a small, lightweight, modular package.

The MDUSA OTA prototype project consists of a handheld target locator module, a laser marker designator, precision azimuth and vertical angle module, tripod and additional cutting-edge technologies.

According to the company, this system improves target acquisition ranges, reduces time to acquisition and allows Forward Observers to adapt to new and unforeseen threats. The system also aligns with the U.S. Army's modernization efforts by enhancing lethality effects from the sensor to the shooter.
