Elbit Systems to Showcase Airpower Capabilities at AFA Conference in U.S.

Elbit Systems will showcase its innovative capabilities for the United States Air Force at the Air Force Association Air, Space, Cyber Conference from 19 to 21 September 2016.

“As the USAF celebrates its sixty-ninth birthday, we are reminded of the important role they have in providing national security for our nation,” said Raanan Horowitz, president and chief executive officer, Elbit Systems of America. “We are proud to support the United States Air Force as a full spectrum partner for their mission success. It is our continued commitment to the pilots, crews, and their families to provide technically advanced solutions that will protect the warfighter during their critical missions and allow them to return home safely.”

Elbit Systems will showcase an array of technologies that support the U.S. Air Force. Some of the products on display include solutions from the RCEVS joint venture, the F-35 helmet, the Digital Eye Piece (DEP) enabling Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) night vision cueing and display capability, as well as an IR-based Missile Warning System that helps pilots identify, avoid, and counter dangerous threats, and precision seekers that can precisely eliminate threats all together.

Digital Eye Piece for JHMCS

Elbit Systems of America is advancing day cueing technology with the DEP, a light weight night vision cueing and display solution for the JHMCS. This next-gen solution brings daytime cueing and display capabilities into night operations without the need for costly upgrades, modifications or any changes to the aircraft. With the DEP, pilots are now able to transition easily from day to night operations while in flight, providing the advantage of helmet mounted cueing and display capability around the clock.

Protection in the Sky

The IR-based Missile Warning System for all aircraft, including fighter jets, PAWS-US provides protection for pilots during constantly changing combat environments. Based on combat-proven technology, the system allows for early threat detection and warning as well as enhanced situation awareness, allowing pilots to focus on their mission, not the threat. The PAWS-US IR sensors when enhanced with Elbit Systems of America’s IR-Centric capabilities, can turn missile defense systems into a targeting quality, sensor to shooter, offensive solutions.

Precision Guidance Seekers

Beyond early warning, Elbit Systems’ family of advanced seekers provides exceptional performance in keeping our troops safe. The Precision Semi-active Laser and Multi-mode seekers are designed for smart munitions such as the as Laser JDAM, Laser Small Diameter Bomb and GRIFFIN. Deployed in all current theaters of operation, the seekers can increase detection range and are highly effective against static and high-speed moving targets.

Keeping Pilots Flying

As the Type-Certificate holder for the C/RC-26, Elbit Systems of America provides aircraft modernization, sustainment, and worldwide contractor logistics support to the C/RC-26 to include Communication, Navigation, and Surveillance - Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) avionics upgrades to meet FAA and EASA mandates and requirements through 2030.

Elbit Systems will also feature an advanced cockpit station to address the aircraft equipment obsolescence issues and increasing aircrew mission effectiveness. Elbit Systems’ advanced cockpit systems include cutting edge mission processors, flight management systems and large area displays designed to increase the aircrew situational awareness and safety.

The Air & Space Conference and Technology Exposition will take place 19-21 September 2016 in Gaylord, National Harbor, MD.
