US: Rockwell Collins and Elbit Systems of America Vision Systems (RCEVS) has introduced a new enhanced night vision solution for fixed wing aircraft. The Digital Eye Piece (DEP) Night Vision Cueing Display (NVCD) is fully qualified and available to fit all fielded JHMCS helmet mounted displays. The new solution allows pilots to fly and train at night just as they do with the JHMCS in the day. The easily integrated capability combines the near zero latency tracking of JHMCS with a modern digital eye piece for a simple, but very effective plug in design.
"As a helmet mounted display market leader for over 15 years, we've developed innovative systems to support our warfighters. Over 5,000 fixed-wing aircraft are equipped with Helmet Mounted Display systems from Elbit. The DEP NVCD is another example of our company's real time aircrew experience and understanding in providing cost effective and operationally important solutions to pilots when they need them,” said Raanan Horowitz, President and Chief Executive Officer, Elbit Systems of America.
According to the company, the DEP NVCDs allow the pilot to use current JHMCS symbology sets at night while flying any currently fielded aviator night vision goggles. The digital display kit can be fitted on any fielded JHMCS helmet.
