Helmet Mounted Pilot Systems To Be Supplied For Apache Helicopters

Elbit Systems : 15 March, 2011  (Application Story)
US Army places order on Elbit Systems for integrated helmet and display sight systems for use by Apache helicopter pilots for greater situational awareness
Elbit Systems has been awarded a $12.75 million delivery order for Integrated Helmet and Display Sight System (IHADSS) spares from the US Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM), in Rock Island, Illinois. Work on this contract will be performed in Fort Worth, Texas.

This delivery order was issued pursuant to an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded to Elbit Systems of America, under which a total of more than $50 million in delivery orders have been issued to date.

The IHADSS system supports the Apache AH-64 attack Helicopter mission by providing an advanced helmet mounted display and sighting system that provides heads up display and accurate line of sight to the pilot and co-pilot. Its capabilities and ease of use have resulted in a solid history of reliability, crew safety and mission success.

Elbit Systems of America President and CEO, Raanan Horowitz commented:“Elbit Systems of America is pleased to provide continued support to the Apache Helicopter team. We appreciate the confidence placed by the U.S. Army in our quality and on-time delivery track record on the Apache IHADSS program”.
