Elbit Systems' Skylens Wearable HUD Begins Flying in Final Configuration Onboard ATR-72/42

Elbit Systems' Skylens wearable display has entered final configuration mode onboard the new ATR-72/42 series aircraft.

ATR is the launch customer for Skylens, which replaces the traditional Head Up Display (HUD) with this configuration.

The system can also be offered as a retrofit to ATR-600 aircraft already in service, as well as to additional potential business aviation aftermarket customers.

Skylens, part of Elbit's Clearvision Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) family, displays high-resolution information, images and video on a high transparency visor.

Suitable for day and night operations and in all weather conditions, the ClearVision system provides head-up information while minimizing the dependency on airport instrumentation.

Equipped with the ClearVision EVS and Skylens wearable display, aircraft are capable of take-off and landing in low visibility conditions and in locations that non-EVS equipped aircraft previously could not approach.

To date, Elbit Systems has delivered over 10,000 Head Up Displays (HUDs), Helmet Mounted Displays (HMD) and Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS) for military and civil operators worldwide.
