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
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,
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.
