Elbit Systems will present cutting edge solutions designed to enhance the capabilities of the U.S. Armed Forces at the Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting and Exposition (AUSA) held in Washington DC from October 21-23, 2013.
It will showcase innovative solutions for land vehicle refurbishment and upgrades and aviation services are featured during AUSA. Through Elbit's San Antonio, TX Land Vehicle Center (LVC), non-operational military vehicles with obsolete technology and unserviceable equipment are restored to a fully capable mission state. Lean processes, a strong quality program, and a highly trained, flexible workforce provide the LVC the ability to deliver a cost effective value to its customers without diminishing quality.
Supporting our Army aviators, Elbit Systems will also present the family of Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Displays (AMLCD), Mission Processors and the latest design in Large Area Displays (LAD).
Revolutionizing the functionality of cockpits, the LAD is a panoramic high-definition display measuring up to 22". The LAD provides integrated high performance flight and mission graphics on a wider, slimmer, single screen. AUSA visitors to the Elbit Systems of America booth may also examine the Integrated Helmet & Display Sight System-21 (IHADSS-21) and participate in a cockpit demonstration which includes a Helmet Display and Tracker System with Degraded Visual Environment symbology.
Elbit Systems will mainly focus on the Skylark I-LE Block II. SkylarkI LE Block II is based on the operationally-proven Skylark I UAS, currently used by many coalition partners.
The Skylark I- LE Block II version increases the system's operational range up to 10 miles and the endurance to approximately 3 hours. The system also features a unique gyroscopic-stabilized, gimbaled payload optimally integrated with algorithms derived from the larger Hermes® 450 UAS to enable auto-tracking of dynamic targets. A hand-launched unit, the Skylark I-LE UAS combines the characteristics normally reserved for larger UAS within the form-factor of a man-portable system.
Elbit Systems presentations highlight solutions for warfighters and ground combat vehicles. The Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) Laser Target Designator (LTD) provides laser marking and designation for foot mobile soldiers while theGranite XR provides extended, long range reconnaissance surveillance and target acquisition. Also on display will be theRemote Weapon Station, LongRange Thermal Imager (LRTI), Micro Designator Marker, and TALOS. TALOS is unattended, low-cost ground radar providing real-time detection and tracking of humans and vehicles within a monitored area.
