Elbit Systems will launch the Helicopter version of the Skylens wearable head-up display for Enhanced Flight Vision System applications at the upcoming Farnborough Airshow 2014.

Helicopter Skylens provides aircrew with a true out of the cockpit view, displaying flight symbology for day and night operation in severe weather conditions. In limited visibility conditions, the pilot is able to fly eyes out due to the wide field of regard display.

Similar to its commercial counterpart, the Helicopter Skylens is packed in a lightweight, easy-to-install device, much like a pair of sunglasses.

The Elbit Systems helicopter avionics product line for civil applications fuses both synthetic and real-time imagery which offer helicopter pilots a real-world view of the terrain along with all obstacles within their flight path, allowing them to see and avoid even when visibility outside the aircraft is limited.
