Elta and Elbit reached the eligibility standards because of the success of past projects. In June, Elbit won a $20 million contract to provide armored personnel carriers to the Philippines. However, Elbit and Elta have not yet passed the second round of bidding, which requires the submission of designs for the aircraft that will allow for autonomous operation in remote bases.
