HAIFA, Israel July 10, 2016 Elbit Systems Ltd.

The project will span across six municipal authorities, including the well-known Punta Del Este tourist resort, over a total of 2000 km². The contract will be performed by the Elbit Systems' subsidiary, Elbit Security Systems Ltd. (ELSEC), over a two-year period.
The Safe District project will include more than 1,000 cameras and sensors, including vehicle traffic control, laid out at strategic standpoints.
