FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- The U.S. subsidiary of Israel's Elbit Systems Ltd. has bought shares held by General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products in a UAS manufacturing company.

UAS Dynamics becomes part of Elbit Systems of America's Unmanned Systems business unit, which focuses on both airborne and sea-borne unmanned systems.
