The Defense Ministry announced a NIS 1.5 billion ($420 million) deal on Sunday to outfit the Israeli Navy with maritime systems to protect the country’s gas fields and shipping lanes.

This is in addition to the purchase of four Sa’ar-6 warships that are meant to guard Israel’s economic waters in the Mediterranean Sea. 

The NIS 1.5 billion budget will go to missile defense batteries, electronic warfare, navigation systems, command and control centers, communication gear and other naval systems, the Defense Ministry said in a statement.

In recent days, two agreements were reached with Israeli companies for some of the systems, while the rest of the individual deals are expected to be reached by year’s end, the ministry said.

Astronautics C.A. Ltd., a Petah Tikva-based firm, won the tender to develop the navigation systems for the Sa’ar 6 warships, using sensors and a proprietary computer program. The government-owned Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, meanwhile, will manufacture the internal and external communication systems for the corvettes.

All of the systems in this deal will be purchased from Israeli defense contractors, unlike the Sa’ar 6 corvettes, which were purchased from Germany.

The remainder of the systems are expected to be purchased by the end of 2017, so that they can be ready before the four Sa’ar 6 ships arrive in 2019. In March, the navy abbounced it would be installing two Iron Dome batteries on every Sa’ar 6 corvette, instead of one as originally planned, in order to better protect them from Hezbollah rockets.
