At the upcoming Helicopter Association
International Heli-Expo 2016 exhibition, set to take place in
Louisville, Kentucky from 1-3 March, Elbit Systems will present a
range of cutting-edge solutions for the commercial helicopter
The company will present its unique display
concept depicting “out of cockpit boundaries” solutions for
helicopters. The wearable Head-Up technology combined with the
multispectral Helicopter HeliEVS enables pilots to fly while
looking outside of the cockpit all the time, enhancing safety and
The Elbit Systems’ booth is built to support
this concept simulating various scenarios such as rig approach,
EMS mission in snowy mountains and more are projected on a half
transparent glass-screen that represents the “real world”
environment. This creative display concept will provide visitors
with a hands-on, real experience of the final configurations of
the systems as they are used in actual flight.
The systems and products to be exhibited at the
is the rotary wing version of the Clearvision next generation
Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS). The solution is comprised of
the HeliEVS camera and the Skylens wearable HUD or the SkyVis
Helmet Mounted Display (HMD), in order to address both non-helmet
and helmet users.
HeliEVS is based
on the ClearVision EVS for fixedwing applications. The system is
packaged in a single Line Replaceable Unit (LRU), which
autonomously performs the complete Enhanced Vision System
capability. Functionality is accomplished through real-time image
fusion between multiple sensors at multiple spectral bands.
Skylens is an
ideal display solution for non-helmet users, packed in a
lightweight, easy-to-install device, as intuitive as a pair of
sunglasses. Operational in limited weather conditions, day and
night, Skylens provides head-up information and minimizes
dependency on airport instrumentation.

own helmet, SkyVis is easily integrated with minimal footprint in
Elbit Systems will be at booth 6733.
