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