Elbit Systems to unveil helicopter night attack solution

Other new capabilities to be launched at the Paris Air Show include an aircraft self-protection system.

Elbit Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq: ESLT; TASE: ESLT) will launch a wide range of innovative next generation systems and capabilities at next week's 51th Paris Air Show.

These include BrightNite - a solution that enables utility helicopters to successfully perform Degraded Visual Environment (DVE) missions in more than 90% of the nights and provides them with piloting capabilities of attack helicopters and enables a new level of operational flight.

New Capabilities include Digital JHMCS - a lightweight and comfortable head mounted display (HMD), provided by RCEVS, a joint venture with Rockwell Collins. Offering an improved HMD Center of Gravity (CG) and balance and thus reducing neck strains, DJHMCS is plug and play, with minimal installation requirements and the ability to operate with the aircraft's current tracker and Electronic Unit.

In Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Electro-Option (EO) Payloads, the Skylark I-LEX is a new generation of the legacy Skylark I-LE mini-UAS, man-portable electric propelled, best fitted for organic "beyond the next hill" reconnaissance, counter insurgency and force protection missions, as well as civil applications including perimeter security, border and coastal surveillance, anti-terror and a variety of law enforcement missions. The Skylark I-LEX is already operational as the standard battalion level UAS of the Israeli Land Forces and has accumulated thousands of operational sorties.

In Aircraft Self Protection Solutions the Air Keeper EW & SIGINT Solution for Aircraft is a highly advanced solution that provides two significantly critical capabilities in one: intelligence gathering and EW defensive capacities onboard the same platform. The solution enables the aircraft to perform missions for any existing plane as cargo, tanker or transport.
