Elbit's Digital Eye Piece Display Provides Night Vision Cueing Capabilities to JHMCS
- Elbit Systems of America - A Global Leader in Situational Awareness and Combat Readiness
Recognizing the aviator's need for advanced nighttime cueing and display capabilities, Elbit Systems of America, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd., is showcasing its Digital Eye Piece (DEP) during the 32nd Annual Air Force Association Air Warfare and Technology Exposition. These technologies, developed in cooperation with Rockwell Collins through the joint venture RCEVS, will be on display at Rosen Shingle Creek, Booth 301, Orlando, FL, on February 24-26.
Since introducing the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS), Elbit Systems of America has provided aviators with over 20 years of proven day cueing technology. Now, Elbit Systems of America advances this technology with the DEP, a lightweight night vision cueing and display solution for the JHMCS helmet mounted display system. 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 and software. The DEP is an affordable solution that meets the operational needs of military aviators and is plug-and-play with currently fielded JHMCS helmets.

"Our plug-and-play capability fits seamlessly into currently fielded night vision devices, driving costs down and bringing crucial JHMCS day capabilities into nighttime operations, as it should be" said Raanan Horowitz, president and chief executive officer, Elbit Systems of America. "Pilots will now have the ability to transition easily from day to night configuration while in flight, enabling mission completion from dusk to dawn."
In addition to the DEP, Elbit Systems of America will also be displaying the Digital JHMCS (DJHMCS). This upgraded system provides aviators with immediate and accurate recognition of friendly units, threats, and unknown targets, giving the aircrew a comprehensive view of the entire battle-space. Already in full production, DJHMCS is a backwards compatible system that provides the same performance and increases growth capabilities.
