Haifa, Israel-based avionics company Elbit Systems has been awarded a contract to provide Israeli air force UH-60 and CH-53 helicopters with ANVIS/HUD(R) systems.  ANVIS/HUD(R) puts critical, real-time flight data on a transparent, helmet-mounted display, thus eliminating the need for the pilot to look down at the instrument panel for important information.  “We see the Israeli Ministry of Defense as a key client,” said Yoram Shmueli, joint general manager of Elbit’s aerospace division in a press release issued today.  “We are very proud of being able to contribute to the safety and air superiority of Israeli air force pilots.” For related news
