Elbit Unveils SkyVis Helmet HUD

 - February 24, 2014, 5:50 PM

Elbit Systems is launching two new products here at Heli-Expo. The first, SkyVis, combines Elbit’s proven helmet-mounted display (HMD) with commercially certifiable line-of-sight and daytime head-up display capabilities, day or night, with or without night-vision goggles (NVG), in all phases of flight and in marginal weather.

Elbit also is unveiling Clearvision Heli EVS, a multi-spectral enhanced vision system designed for helicopters that provides improved situational awareness. Heli EVS builds on the company’s Clearvision EVS system designed for business jets.

The system employs fusion algorithms and a range of spectral bands, offers a 35-degree field of view and is designed to help pilots cope with low-visibility conditions.

Live demonstrations of SkyVis HMD and ClearVision EVS can be seen in the company’s Heli-Expo booth (No. 3211).

Other Elbit products on display include the 19-inch by 8.25-inch large area display, a dual-redundant touchscreen that is NVG-compatible with enhanced awareness applications including digital maps and HTAWS.
