Helmet Mounted Systems for Blackhawk Pilots

Elbit Systems
: 04 November, 2008  (Company News)
Line of Sight (LOS) system for the Israli Airforce Blackhawk and CH53 helicopters.
Elbit Systems has announced it has been awarded a contract to supply ANVIS/HUD systems for the Israeli Air Force Blackhawk ('Yanshuf') and CH 53 ('Yasur') helicopters.

The new Head-up Display systems will enable the Helicopter pilot to fly 'head out of the cockpit', day & night, while having all the flight data projected onto the helmet. This new feature is crucial as it allows the pilot to perform missions successfully, ensuring high situational awareness and safety. The systems' contribution to flight safety is mostly significant in extreme night and weather conditions, in operational flights and during low visibility landings (LVL).

Furthermore, this is the first time Elbit Systems is implementing the new ANVIS/HUD feature Line of Sight (LOS) for use in utility helicopters. This feature allows correlation with the pilot's line of sight and designation of waypoints on the navigation system in real-time, such as targets, threats and intelligence. Additionally, the system improves pilot coordination by allowing each crew member to track the other's line of sight, eliminating the need for verbal communication between the crew.

Yoram Shmueli, Joint General Manager of Elbit Systems' Aerospace Division, said: 'We see the Israeli Ministry of Defense as a key client, and we are very proud of being able to contribute to the safety and air superiority of Israel Air Force pilots.'
