Elbit Awarded National Maintenance Contract for Repairs to ANVIS/HUD

Elbit Systems of America, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd. has been awarded a five-year, $23 million Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) National Maintenance Contract by the US Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM), Aberdeen Proving Grounds, for depot level repair services on Elbit Systems of America's Aviator's Night Vision Imaging System (ANVIS-7) Head Up Display (HUD) System (ANVIS/HUD(r)). The contract is a follow-on to previous Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract for depot level repair services on the ANVIS/HUD(r). Work will be performed by Elbit Systems of America Service and Support Solutions in Talladega, Alabama and is expected to be completed in 2016. Elbit Systems of America is a world leader in providing sophisticated avionics systems for rotary and fixed wing military and commercial aircraft. Service and Support Solutions is the Elbit Systems of America Repair Center of Excellence, supporting Elbit Systems of America systems and those of several other major manufacturers. The ANVIS/HUD(r) collects and displays critical flight information from aircraft sensors and converts the information into visual imagery in rotary and fixed-wing aircraft. The system, which consists of the Signal Data Converter (SDC), Control Converter Unit (CCU) and the Helmet Display Unit (HDU), improves flight safety and situational awareness by reducing the pilot's head and eye motion for cockpit scanning. Using the ANVIS/HUD(r), complicated maneuvers in bad weather and low visibility conditions, low altitudes, or night operations may be performed safely with enhanced survivability. Elbit Systems of America, President and Chief Executive Officer, Raanan Horowitz commented: "This follow-on contract is evidence of our commitment to provide exceptional life-cycle management services in support of mission readiness requirements. We are proud to offer leading solutions and support for our ANVIS/HUD(r) and many other systems through the Repair Center of Excellence. This agreement reinforces our strong relationship with the Army and we look forward to our continued partnership."
