India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has entered into an agreement with Israeli firm Elbit Systems for the supply of Digital Overhead Head Up Display Systems (DOHS).
The agreement with Elbit Systems Electro Optics Elop Ltd was signed during Aero India 2021 in Bengaluru last week.
The systems will initially be manufactured in HAL’s existing Korwa facility. A dedicated facility will be augmented progressively in proportion of manufacturing volume, HAL said in a statement today.
The Digital Overhead HUD with modern optics provides sharp brightness, larger field of view and larger head motion box.
Earlier, HAL’s Korwa Division entered into licensed Transfer of Technology agreement with ELOP Electro-Optics Industries Ltd., Israel, for setting up D-level maintenance and manufacturing facilities of CR based HUD (front) in the year 2000 and 2003, respectively. More than 500 HUDs have been supplied for various Indian platforms such as Su-30MKI, Jaguar and MiG-27 upgrade.
