  • Elbit Systems U.S. Subsidiary Integrates Color Helmet Display and Tracking Systems on U.S. Navy MH-60S Seahawk Test Aircraft


Elbit Systems, April 01, 2015 - HAIFA, Israel - Elbit Systems Ltd.announced today that its wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America, LLC, was awarded a contract from Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) to install, integrate and support flight evaluations of the Elbit Color Helmet Display and Tracking System (CHDTS) on MH-60S Seahawk test aircraft for the U.S. Navy.

The contract value, which is in an amount that is not material to Elbit Systems, will be performed over one year.

The program is part of the U.S. Navy's MH-60 Sierra's Improved Targeting System for the Seahawks' Armed Helicopter Weapon Kits.

The CHDTS will provide the pilots with both night and day capability to see color flight instrument symbols on their helmet mounted display (HMD) modules. Additionally, the line of sight tracking system enables the pilots to interact with the flight navigation system, improves pilot and copilot situational awareness and can also be used to control pilot or copilot slewable sensor systems. The system also presents a continuously calculated weapon impact symbol for the pilot display, thus increasing system accuracy in the employment of installed weapon systems.

"We are pleased to provide U.S. naval aviators the CHDTS for their aircraft," commented Raanan Horowitz, president and chief executive officer of Elbit Systems of America. "The CHDTS will provide the pilots with improved situational awareness through enhanced optics and symbology displayed directly on their HMDs, allowing the pilots to keep their eyes up and out."
