Elbit wins $50M ANVIS HUD contract with U.S. Army
By Helicopters Staff
Elbit Systems Ltd.’s U.S. subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America LLC, was awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (ID/IQ) contract with a maximum value of approximately $50 million to produce spare parts in support of the Aviators’ Night Vision Imaging System Head-Up Display system (ANVIS HUD) of the U.S. Army.
The contract, which will be performed over a period of five years, was awarded on behalf of the United States Army by the Defense Logistics Agency. An initial order for $17.9 million was recently placed under this contract, to be supplied until 2023.
Elbit explains the ANVIS HUD is a day and night display system that connects to the helmets of Army helicopter pilots, allowing the pilots’ heads to remain upright and looking out of the aircraft, with all applicable information presented in front of the pilots’ eyes, instead of looking down or inside the cockpit to view information from various sensors.
“Provisioning ANVIS HUD spares enables U.S. Army pilots to have the equipment available to support aircraft readiness,” said Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO, Elbit Systems of America. “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.”
