  • 30-Sep-2011 09:42 EDT

The color HMD is based on the proven Elbit Systems ANVIS/HUD system that has been in use by U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, U.S. Coast Guard, and U.S. Air Force rotary wing/tilt rotor pilots for many years.

Elbit Systems of America LLC has been awarded a contract to supply Boeing Military Aircraft with the CV-22 color helmet-mounted display (HMD) for the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC). Work will be performed in Fort Worth, TX. The contract will allow Elbit Systems of America to provide the U.S. Air Force with a color HMD that includes full helmet tracking capability, and effectively meets AFSOC objectives in the near and long term. Coupling Helmet Display and Tracking System (HDTS) technology with new color symbology for unaided day and night vision goggle missions, AFSOC CV-22 crews will attain a higher level of situational awareness, allowing them to fly heads up and eyes out.
