Amir Keidan 5 Jun 07 12:06 Elbit Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq: ESLT; TASE: ESLT) unit Tallahassee Technologies Inc. (Talla-Tech) has received $18.5 million in orders from the US Marine Corps for the company’s rugged hand-held computers, which provide situational awareness for dismounted Marines. Talla-Tech is a wholly-owned US subsidiary of Elbit Systems’ subsidiary Tadiran Communications Ltd.. Elbit Systems completed an offer to purchase for Tadiran Communications in April and delisted it from the TASE. The Marine Corps chose the Talla-Tech Rugged Personal Digital Assistant (RPDA-57), which is based on both the Microsoft Windows CE and Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system. Elbit Systems noted that Talla-Tech and Tadiran Communications have supplied rugged computers to the Marine Corps since 1998 in both mounted and dismounted configurations.
