Elbit Systems of America, LLC Key Developments
Elbit Systems of America, LLC Develops 'Combat Force Multiplier' for Helicopter Crews
Oct 21 13
Elbit Systems of America, LLC developed situational awareness technology advances, provide helicopter crews the visual cues they need to negotiate landings and takeoffs, even in the most severe degraded visual environments (DVE). Incorporating technologies such as a Helmet Display and Tracker System (HDTS) with its intuitive 3D conformal grid symbology, Elbit Systems of America demonstrated a greatly enhanced level of mission capability in simulations conducted in the U.S. Army Black Hawk Engineering Analysis Cockpit (BEAC), a fixed-based UH-60L flight simulator in Redstone Arsenal, AL. In these rotary wing simulations, Elbit Systems of America's HDTS with 3D symbology successfully completed 100% of its tests in DVE brownout conditions. Conversely, numerous mission failures were experienced using 2D symbology under identical conditions. Detailed U.S. Army Research Lab reports containing the results of these tests are available upon request from the U.S. Army Air Warrior office. U.S. Army test evaluators stated that Elbit Systems of America's 3D heads-up conformal symbology demonstrates an exceptionally strong positive effect on flight crew situation awareness, workload task performance, and preference. It also allows pilots to safely hover in severe brownout conditions. The HDTS with 3D conformal grid symbology provides intuitive visual approach and drift cues enabling pilots to know where they are in space and time. The ancillary benefits of the system are significant. The system delivers improved crewmember coordination by providing indicators for one crewmember to determine the other's line-of-sight, making it possible for both pilots to focus immediately on a designated object or area. For aircraft equipped with automated landing systems, pilots have instant line-of-sight designations of new landing points. Also, pilots of aircraft equipped with sensors or weapon systems can now have hands-free, heads-up targeting and/or slewing of sensors to their line-of-sight.
Elbit Systems of America, LLC Delivering SATCOM Amplifiers for Army Aviation
Oct 20 13
Elbit Systems of America, LLC announced that earlier 2013 it was awarded a contract for TC-100L amplifiers as part of a weight reduction initiative for the US Army's OH-58 Kiowa Warrior. Deliveries of the TC-100L SATCOM amplifiers are scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2013. With a team of experienced engineers and a highly qualified work force, Elbit Systems of America designs, manufactures, and maintains their advanced communications amplifier product line in Fort Worth, Texas, delivering hundreds of high power amplifiers to the US Navy, Air Force, and Army each year. Recognizing the need to add capability while minimizing platform weight, Elbit also developed a dual-channel communications amplifier that supports the Army's legacy (ARC-201) radios along with the new Joint Tactical Radio System's (JTRS) airborne radios running SRW & WNW waveforms. Elbit's dual-channel avionic amplifier is smaller and lighter than the Army's current IFM amplifier and provides additional JTRS capability, allowing the Army to field new technology, maintain current capability, and reduce platform weight.
Elbit Systems of America, LLC Receives $44.8 Million IDIQ Contract for the Ongoing Depot Level Service and Support of the AH-1W Super Cobra Helicopter's Night Targeting System
Sep 25 13
Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that Elbit Systems of America, LLC. has been awarded a $44.8 million Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract to be performed over the next five years for the ongoing depot level service and support of the AH-1W Super Cobra helicopter's Night Targeting System. Separate delivery orders are anticipated to be issued to satisfy each year's requirements of the nine weapons replaceable assemblies (WRA) that make up the NTS.
