Elbit Systems announced today that it has won a five-year $29 million contract to provide logistics support of F-16 head-up display (HUD) electric module assemblies to the United States Air Force (USAF).
“The F-16 electric module assembly contract was part of a Value Added Engineering Change Proposal (VECP) we presented in support of the USAF and their F-16’s HUD system,” stated Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of Elbit Systems.
Like most HUDs, the F-16 HUD operates with an optical lens assembly, a combiner, and computer interface.
“F-16 pilots rely on their HUD for situational awareness and targeting during critical missions. Our advanced technology provides a crisper, sharper image for the pilot and increases the overall operational performance of the HUD,” continued Horowitz. “Furthermore, the technology reduces power consumption by approximately 50 percent.”
In addition to upgrading the HUDs at its Talladega facility, Elbit Systems also provides upgraded HUD electronic modules to Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah and Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan, for installation by Air Force personnel.
