HAIFA, Israel, September 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: ESLT) ("ESLT") announced today that its subsidiary Elbit Security Systems Ltd. (ELSEC) was awarded an Israel Ports Development & Assets Company Ltd. (IPC) contract, for the supply and installation of a perimeter security system. The system is for the protection of the Haifa port, including the chemicals terminal, as well as the Kishon port and the "Shavit" fishermen dock.
