Israel’s Elbit Systems of America was contracted to produce spare parts for the US aviators’ helmet mounted night vision imaging systems with initial order for $17.9 million to be supplied until 2023.
Israel’s Elbit Systems said on Wednesday its US subsidiary won a contract worth up to $50 million to produce spare parts for the aviators’ night vision imaging system head-up display system of the US Army.
The contract, to be carried out over five years, was awarded on behalf of the US Army by the Defense Logistics Agency. An initial order for $17.9 million was placed under this contract, to be supplied until 2023.
The day and night display system connects to the helmets of army helicopter pilots, allowing their heads to remain upright and looking out of the aircraft, with all applicable information presented in front of their eyes, instead of looking down or inside the cockpit to view information.
“Provisioning ANVIS HUD spares enables US Army pilots to have the equipment available to support aircraft readiness. Elbit Systems of America has a long history of supplying the ANVIS HUD, and we are dedicated to continuing to supply these systems that aid performance, increase operator situational awareness, and ultimately warfighter safety,” President and CEO of Elbit Systems of America Raanan Horowitz said in a statement.
On Monday, Elbit won another contract worth $35 million with the United States Navy.
This five-year agreement covers the maintenance and repair of V-22 transport aircraft. Maintenance of these devices will be performed at sites in Fort Worth, Texas, and Talladega, Alabama.
