Home Search Send to Friend Latest Travel News Asia Thursday, 8 May 2014

Elbit Systems has launched Skylens, a wearable head-up display for Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) applications.

Packed in a lightweight, easy-to-install device, similar to a pair of sunglasses, Skylens is suitable for day and night operations and for all weather conditions.

 The system provides head-up information while minimizing the dependency on airport instrumentation.

 Equipped with Skylens, aircraft are capable of take-off and landing in low visibility conditions and in locations that non EVS-equipped aircraft could not access previously.

Skylens, a part of the Clearvision Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) family, displays high-resolution symbology and video on a transparent visor, providing pilots with cutting edge head out capabilities.

Designed and built for use by commercial aviation anywhere in the world, the system provides a solution for retrofitting existing platforms, small cockpit airplanes and helicopters.

The new system, which is in advanced processes of airworthiness certification, is expected to enter into service by end of 2016.

For more than 30 years, Elbit Systems has been a market leader in the field of night vision and enhanced vision systems in the military and commercial aviation market, supporting thousands of helicopters, business jets and other aircraft. To date the company has delivered over 10,000 Head-Up Displays (HUD), Helmet Mounted Displays (HMD) and Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS) for military and civil operators worldwide. These operational systems have gathered more than 2,000,000 operational hours to date.
