Elbit Systems‘ U.S. subsidiary will feature new aircraft cockpit technologies for degraded visual environments at the Association of the United States Army event this week.
The company said Saturday Elbit Systems of America will demonstrate products that work to help U.S. Army aviators perform their missions through poor weather or flight conditions.
The technologies work utilize sensors, flight controls, computing, helmet trackers and conformal symbology to support nighttime navigation, automated landings, cueing and other operations.
Among the featured products is the helmet-based cueing software, which provides pilots information on takeoff and landing.
“The brains of our tracked helmet system is the Advanced Signal Data Computer, which is our entry point into the complex computing required to synthesize multiple unstructured video and data streams into meaningful situational awareness imagery for the pilot,” said Raanan Horowitz, president and CEO of Elbit Systems of America.
He added the company also is working on a distributed aperture system to support night flights for helicopters.
