Elbit Systems of America, LLC, Fort Worth, Texas,, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESLT) unveils, at the 2009 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition, its newest tactical computer, the ETC Mark IV, designed to deliver powerful computer capabilities within cramped vehicle conditions.

The ETC Mark IV features a brilliant daylight-readable 10.4" touch-screen display, built-In keyboard, Windows XP or Linux operating system capability, ergonomic design, Intel(R) Dual Core 1.66MHz processor, 2GB DDR2 memory, flash memory for rugged use, two radio modems, 1GBps LAN interface and many enabling interfaces that allow the unit to replace multiple legacy systems with one computer. The computer is designed for comfortable use as well as ease of operation, and twelve programmable function keys make it an ideal platform for custom applications. The ETC Mark IV is the newest in a series of tactical vehicle computer systems produced by Elbit Systems, more than 13,000 of which are in use by various military and coalition forces around the world.

The ETC Mark IV will be available with embedded military SAASM or commercial GPS as well as two radio interfaces and options for other interfaces such as FBCB2, CAN Bus, 1553 Bus or other customized user interface requirements.

"We are very excited to introduce this new vehicle computer solution at AUSA," said Jim English, vice president C4I Solutions, Elbit Systems of America. "We believe the new ETC Mark IV is a refreshingly versatile and space-saving computer solution that makes sense for both new vehicle platforms and retrofit programs. It is our third entry into the tactical vehicle computer market, following the Tacter(R) MVP with its remote 10.4" display and the Tacter-31D, our dismountable Core 2 Duo tablet computer."

The ETC Mark IV continues the long line of Tacter(R) battlefield computers produced by Elbit Systems of America and will join it's predecessors on the front lines in service to the war fighter.
