Elbit Systems with market cap of $4.87 billion, says that this award represents the US Navy’s first production order for the line-of-sight helmet tracking system and the integration of targeting symbology in the Armed Helicopter Weapon System (AHWS) for the MH-60S fleet.

According to Elbit Systems website the use of standard interfaces allows for HMS upgrades without requiring modifications to the helicopter installment base when adding night, day, wide-field-of-view, cueing, man-machine interface (MMI), and safety high-performance vision systems.

“Elbit Systems leadership in the field of helicopter HMS, is particularly evident in the attack rotorcraft HMS market, where the Company’s ANVIS-HUD is the preferred choice for utility rotorcraft platforms. More than 5,000 helicopters worldwide are equipped with Elbit Systems’ ANVISHUD systems.”

“Elbit Systems of America is strategically focused on delivering capabilities that aircrews can trust to increase mission effectiveness”, said Raanan Horowitz, president and chief executive officer of Elbit Systems of America. “The HDTS and CCIP are prime examples of our advanced display and targeting solutions that give aircrews a decisive edge during critical missions”.
