Elbit Systems Ltd., Haifa, Israel, was awarded a contract to supply ANVIS/Head-Up Display (HUD) systems for the Israeli Air Force Blackhawk and CH 53 helicopters. The project is scheduled to be completed within 2009, the company said. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed. Elbit said the HUD systems are designed to increase situational awarness and safety, allowing the pilot to fly "head out of the cockpit." The system also incorporates Line of Sight functionality which allows the correlation with the pilot's line of sight and designation of waypoints on the navigation system in real-time, Elbit said.
