Contracts awarded for night vision system

Image placeholder title

Elbit Systems Ltd. recently announced it has reached an agreement on two contracts worth approximately $14 million, to supply Aviator’s Night Vision Imaging System/Head-Up Displays (ANVIS/HUD) for “helicopters of two NATO member countries.” The ANVIS/HUD(TM) system allows the helicopter pilot to fly night operations without looking into the cockpit, by projecting critical flight information into the pilot’s visor or night vision goggles‘ view.

ANVIS/HUD has been used by the US military since the mid-1990s, and has equipped more than 5,000 helicopters belonging to 20 countries. Integrated platforms include the H-60 series, CH-53, CH-47, CH-46, V-22, AH-1, UH-1, Super Puma, Cougar, and others. Elbit also offers the HeliDASH system as a higher end choice; their major competitor these days is Thales’ TopOwl, in service with the Eurocopter Tiger, South Africa’s Rooivalk attack helicopter, NH90 variants, and the USMC’s forthcoming UH-1Y and AH-1Z helicopters.
