The American arm of Elbit Systems is demonstrating its equipment for special operations forces at industry conference
Elbit Systems attends Special operations conference

Elbit Systems is presenting its innovative special operations solutions in booth #1334 during the 2013 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference at the Tampa Convention Centre in Tampa, Florida, May 14-16, 2013.

Using demonstrations, video presentations, and product displays, Elbit Systems will depict the successful integration of systems available to empower Special Operations Forces.

The company will present the Large Area Display (LAD), Skylark I-LE Block II, C-130 cockpit solutions including the Digital Air Transport Head Up Display and the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System IITM (JHMCS II). SOFIC visitors to the booth may also examine Advanced Communication Power Amplifiers, a JTAC LTD, and Rattler-P.

Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System IITM

The Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System II (JHMCS II) is the successor Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) to the JHMCS program. A low cost, low integration Intelligent Vision HMD solution, the JHMCS II is available in two models: the JHMCS II-M and JHMCS II-H. The JHMCS II-M offers magnetic tracking and works with existing JHMCS subsystems. The JHMCS II-H offers the same HMD performance with an opto-inertial tracker. The JHMCS II-H replaces JHMCS subsystems with a lightweight Aircraft Interface Unit which does not require cooling, a mounting tray, or cockpit mapping.

Large Area Display (LAD)

Revolutionizing the functionality of cockpits, the LAD is a panoramic high-definition display measuring up to 22”. The LAD presents integrated high performance flight and mission graphics onto a wider, slimmer, single screen.

Skylark I-LE Block II

During SOFIC, Elbit Systems will also feature the Skylark I-LE Block II Unmanned Aircraft System. The Skylark offers cutting edge technology designed to assist warfighters in fulfilling close range, tactical missions. Based on lessons learned and operational experience accumulated with United States Forces in Afghanistan, the Block II has an operational range up to 15 km, maintains approximately 3 hours of endurance and is designed to perform in harsh environments such as high altitudes and gusting winds. The hand-launched Skylark unmanned aircraft system offers covert flexibility, sharp imagery and the ability to operate at any time day or night. A hand-launched unit, the Skylark combines the characteristics normally reserved for larger unmanned aircraft system within the form-factor of a man-portable system

Digital Air Transport Head Up Display (HUD)

Elbit Systems will present the C-130 Digital Air Transport HUD. The digital air transport model is a technologically advanced overhead-mounted digital HUD, optimized for military and commercial aircraft. The Digital Air Transport HUD displays a FLIR picture in XGA resolution with overlaid symbology. This HUD can provide improved situational awareness, increased safety, and enhanced operational capabilities for the Special Operation Forces.

In addition to avionics and unmanned aircraft systems, Elbit Systems will also highlight high performance computing and communications interoperability solutions and capabilities including the Dual Power Amplifier, TC100L, TC-100D, and the TC150M.

Dual Avionics Power Amplifier

The Dual Aviation Power Amplifier provides two-way extended range communications of both fielded and next-generation waveforms. The power amplifier includes a 25W UHF/L-Band channel for next-generation Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) as well as a 50W channel for legacy Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS). The compact design of the Dual Aviation Power Amplifier reduces platform size and weight constraints.

TC Family of Power Amplifiers

The TC-100L, TC-100D, and TC-150 power amplifiers are 100 and 150 watt power amplifiers designed for the SATCOM uplink band with low noise and high dynamic range.  The TC-150 has additional multi-band capability providing 50W Line-of-Sight (LOS) from 30 MHz to 512 MHz. Each power amplifier is designed for continuous operation in a tactical environment.  With a rugged, weatherproof chassis, the amplifiers are capable of operation in vehicles, shelters, aircraft, transit cases, and racks, or on the ground at the base of the antenna mast.

The Sensor & Electro-Optics team will present the Joint Terminal Attack Controller Laser Target Designator and Rattler-P. Each light weight device is designed to enhance the Special Operation Forces’ ability to successfully accomplish their missions.

Joint Terminal Attack Controller Laser Target Designator (JTAC-LTD)

The JTAC-LTD, based on Rattler Laser technology, is one of the lightest weight laser targeting/hand-off solutions available for foot mobile soldiers. With the Direct View Optic, warfighters never have to attach and boresight an external optic for day missions. Additionally, the 1-watt NIR pointer boresighted to the 1064nm laser provides an organic night capability. The JTAC-LTD also has a top rail and bottom rail grabber giving soldiers options for stacking mission specific equipment.

Rattler-P

At less than 3lbs, the Rattler-P is one of the lightest laser marking devices in the world. The Rattler-P provides an immediately available hand-off capability to Laser Spot Trackers with an intuitive and simple pistol design and man-machine interface.
