The Digital Eye Piece for the JHMCS 

Elbit Systems of America is advancing day cueing technology with the DEP, a light weight night vision cueing and display solution for the JHMCS. This next-gen solution brings daytime cueing and display capabilities into night operations without the need for costly upgrades, modifications or any changes to the aircraft.

Protection in the skies - know the threat before it is one

Based on combat-proven technology, the system allows for early threat detection and warning as well as enhanced situation awareness, allowing pilots to focus on their mission, not the threat. The PAWS-US IR sensors when enhanced with Elbit Systems of America's IR-Centric capabilities, can turn missile defense systems into a targeting quality, sensor to shooter, offensive solutions.

Deployed in all current theaters of operation, the seekers can increase detection range and are highly effective against static and high-speed moving targets.
