FORT WORTH, Texas, February 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Recognizing the pilot's need for situational awareness and advanced training, Elbit Systems of America, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd., is showcasing its innovative solutions in booth #322 during the 30th Annual Air Force Association Air Warfare and Technology Exposition in Orlando, Florida, February 19-21, 2014.
JHMCS II is the next generation Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) from the joint venture of Elbit Systems of America and Rockwell Collins. Featuring more intelligence and capabilities than its predecessor, the JHMCS II provides pilot intelligent vision, enhanced situational awareness across the entire battle space during day and night operations, and uses high definition, color symbology while keeping the pilot's head up and eyes out. For over 15 years, the JHMCS has been a combat-proven, helmet-mounted display choice for fixed-wing aircraft, including the F/A-18, F-16, and F-15. The JHMCS II was developed to meet the needs of the modern military aircrew and provides a superior level of situational awareness. "Pilots flying with JHMCS II will have a decided advantage when they observe, orient, decide and act," said Mark Hodge, Vice President Business Development of Elbit Systems of America, LLC. "We worked alongside warfighters to create a superior system that improves information access."
To assist in preparing the pilots for combat, Elbit Systems of America's Embedded Virtual Avionics (EVA[TM]) provides live, virtual, constructive (LVC) training making every sortie an training opportunity. EVA transforms trainer aircraft into an advanced virtual fighter aircraft and provides fighter aircraft with virtual air and ground adversaries. "Pilots in the trainer are able to see, operate, and experience functional weapon systems while our fighter pilots get to train in challenging scenarios free from range, threat and adversary aircraft scheduling constraints," commented Hodge. "Because training is conducted in a virtual environment, training effectiveness increases and cost decrease." An advanced, proven solution, EVA is integrated with numerous mission computers installed on the world's leading trainer aircraft.
Both the JHMCSII and EVA will be on display during the expo. For more information, visit the Elbit Systems of America website, http://www.elbitsystems-us.com.
