Elbit Systems Introduces BrightNite: A New Solution that Enables Utility Helicopters to Operate in More Than 90% of Night Missions


Elbit Systems, June 11, 2015 - Elbit Systems introduces BrightNite a solution that enables utility helicopters to successfully perform Degraded Visual Environment (DVE) missions in more than 90% of night flying situations, providing them with piloting capabilities of attack helicopters and enabling a new level of operational flight.

Lightweight, compact and cost-effective, BrightNite is a multi-spectral end to end panoramic piloting solution that delivers the essential data directly to both eyes of the pilot, enabling intuitive flight in a head-up, eyes-out orientation in pitch dark and other DVE conditions.

The unique solution is comprised of non-gimballed uncooled FLIR and highly sensitive Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) sensors that present an ultra-wide field of regard intuitive image to a display system which projects to the ANVIS/HUD™ night Helmet Mounted Display (HMD). The display is overlaid by a synthetic layer that follows the contours of the landscape and a third layer of 3D conformal symbology, which displays hazards, mission conformal symbology and tactical data. Multiple crew-members can simultaneously can the entire field of regard, using a single sensor and the synthetic world, enabling them to fly in common Line-Of-Sight (LOS).

The new and unique BrightNite solution will be presented at the Elbit Systems’ booth (Chalet A-200) at the upcoming Paris Air Show.
