Rockwell Collins Elbit Systems of America Vision Systems (RCEVS) has introduced a new enhanced night vision solution for fixed wing aircraft. The Digital Eye Piece (DEP) Night Vision Cueing Display (NVCD) is fully qualified and available to fit all fielded JHMCS helmet mounted displays.
This new and affordable solution allows pilots to fly and train at night just as they do with the JHMCS in the day. The easily integrated capability combines the near zero latency tracking of JHMCS with a modern digital eye piece for a simple, but very effective plug in design.
"Providing this key capability will enable pilots with a greater ability to perform successful nighttime missions," said Troy Brunk, vice president and general manager of Airborne Solutions for Rockwell Collins. "This latest product offering continues to position RCEVS as a leader in providing state-of-the-art helmet mounted displays for fighter pilots."
"As a helmet mounted display market leader for over 15 years, we've developed innovative systems to support our warfighters. Over 5,000 fixed-wing aircraft are equipped with Helmet Mounted Display systems from Elbit," commented Raanan Horowitz, President and Chief Executive Officer, Elbit Systems of America. "The DEP NVCD is another example of our company's real time aircrew experience and understanding in providing cost effective and operationally important solutions to pilots when they need them."
DEP NVCDs allow the pilot to use current JHMCS symbology sets at night while flying any currently fielded aviator night vision goggles. This digital display kit can be fitted on any fielded JHMCS helmet.
The DEP NVCDs, which integrates with all aircraft and helmets, are developed from the experience of a mature and proven product line including safety and adaptability for future needs.
This technology developed by Elbit is also included with the follow on JHMCS II helmet, currently in production.
"We have taken advantage of our next generation night vision solutions and brought these forward to be available and affordable with the JHMCS product line. This is a significant, high value upgrade for current F16 and F15 aircraft," said Mark Hodge, Vice-President Business Development, Elbit Systems of America, "This NVG solution can be easily integrated with any aircraft and coordinates seamlessly with all versions of JHMCS HMDs.
