Elbit Systems to Showcase Commercial Helicopter Solutions at HELI-EXPO 2018

Elbit Systems will showcase its Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) Heli-ClearVision suite at the upcoming Helicopter Association International HELI-EXPO 2018 exhibition in Las Vegas Convention Center from 27 February to 1 March 2018.

Heli-ClearVision, the rotary-wing version of the unique Clearvision fixed-wing suite, has been selected by Leonardo Helicopters to be installed on the company’s commercial helicopters. The suite allows helicopter pilots to perform flights in low visibility conditions, previously considered as challenging and risky. The Heli-ClearVision rotary-wing concept includes the Skylens, SkyVis (pictured) and HeliEVS systems.

Elbit Systems' SkyVis provides helicopter pilots with a conformal “head up” view, displaying flight, vehicle and navigation symbology for day, night and NVG operation in limited weather conditions. An add-on to the pilot’s own helmet, SkyVis is easily integrated with minimal footprint in the cockpit.. Click to enlarge.

The complete Heli-ClearVision suite will be displayed at the Elbit Systems booth (1741) including the following systems:

HeliEVS is based on the certified ClearVision EVS for fixed-wing platforms. The system is packaged in a single Line Replaceable Unit (LRU), installed outside of the helicopter. The high quality imagery in low visibility conditions is accomplished through real-time image fusion between 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. Operating in low visibility conditions, day and night, Skylens provides head-up information and minimizes dependency on the outside world and on the helipad infrastructure.
