Head-Up Display Helmet Testing Completed

Elbit Systems : 01 March, 2011  (New Product)
Elbit Systems performs test flight for improved ANVIS/HUD helmet designed for providing improved situational awareness for helicopter pilots
Head-Up Display Helmet Testing Completed
Elbit Systems has successfully completed a test flight of its ANVIS/HUD Day/Night Helicopter Helmet Mounted HUD with colour symbology onboard a Bell 206 helicopter. The new technology will be implemented in future Helicopter HUD programs per customer requests.

Adding colour symbology to the Day/Night ANVIS/HUD helps pilots differentiate between tactical display symbols.

The improved ANVIS/HUD system design takes into account customer feedback and lessons learned from hundreds of thousands of operational flight hours accumulated by Elbit Systemsí ANVIS/HUD systems in the US and in other countries around the world. The system provides improved safety and situational awareness while adding the benefits of colour symbology and display.

Yoram Shmuely, Co-General Manager of Elbit Systems' Aerospace Division, noted: 'Elbit Systems continuously invests in the upgrade of the successful ANVIS/HUD product line, adding new capabilities to meet the evolving needs of modern helicopters. We are very proud to introduce this new and advanced capability to our ANVIS/HUD line of systems. This addition builds on Elbit Systems' vast experience as a Design Center of Excellence in Helicopter Helmet Mounted HUDs.'

The latest colour Flat Panel Day and Night HUDs will be ready for production deliveries by the first quarter of 2012.
