Tel Aviv: Nir-Or, a subsidiary of Israeli IMCO was selected to provide the company’s  cutting-edge situational awareness system to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for their armoured bulldozers.

The system includes a video matrix, operator display, and hatch controller, and it is designed to improve the bulldozers’ operational capabilities. The armoured bulldozers are used by the IDF in many anti-terror operations.

Nir-Or’s advanced video management system incorporates a state-of-the-art video aggregator, seamlessly integrating various video feeds from the vehicle’s systems. This integration provides operators with a consolidated and clear view of the surroundings, enhancing their situational awareness while they are inside the armoured vehicle. With touch-screen technology, Nir-Or’s Video Management System empowers operators with complete control over the vehicle’s actions within its environment. This feature not only optimises operational efficiency but also strengthens the safety of the vehicle’s operation.

Nir-Or will conduct the development and manufacturing process in collaboration with its American sister company, ADTi, a US based manufacturer of advanced electronic solutions for the military sector.

Commencing in 2024, 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 this significant transaction is estimated to be approximately 10.8 million NIS. IMCO Group anticipates securing future orders for comparable systems tailored to additional armoured military bulldozers, with an approximate value of 4 million NIS.

Tamir Ziv, CEO of Nir-Or said that 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.

Ariel Kandel, CEO of IMCO said that the company’s capabilities are designed to meet the needs of modern defence.
