Elbit Systems of America, Partners to Showcase Functionality and Interoperability of Its Airborne Systems

Elbit America demo will showcase FACE 3.0 compliance

Elbit Systems of America, (NASDAQ: ESLT) (TASE: ESLT) will showcase solutions that demonstrate the company's ability to create software that conforms to the latest compatibility and safety standards across avionics systems for the United States military at the FACE & SOSA Expo & Technical Interchange Meeting. With its partners, Elbit Systems of America will exhibit in booth 58/59 at the Dayton Convention Center in Dayton, Ohio on Sept. 17, 2019. The event is hosted by the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center.

The FACE & SOSA Expo & TIM is a one-day event that will bring more than 50 companies and organizations together to highlight progress made for functionality and interoperability of modular open systems used across various airborne systems. At the event, Elbit Systems of America will demonstrate their ability to provide FACE-conformant software with our large area display (LAD) and linked helmet mounted display (HMD), while our partner through Elbit Systems Ltd., Universal Avionics, will show their software-based flight management system operating in a FACE-conformant Common Operating Environment (COE).

Elbit Systems of America's HMD and LAD demo showcases the very interoperability promoted by the Open Group FACE and SOSA consortia. In this demo alone, the software components of half a dozen companies work together to receive, process and relay information from an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast to the HMD and LAD, while running in the latest FACE 3.0 COE. Those companies are CoreAVI, DDC-I, Inc., ENSCO Avionics and Real-Time Innovations.

"As a founding member of the FACE Consortium, Elbit Systems of America is committed to keeping our avionics software safe, secure and compatible across platforms," said Layne Merritt, vice president of Technology & Innovation at Elbit Systems of America. "Our goal is provide our military customers the best capabilities through common computing infrastructure. This approach reduces costs and quickens the pace for getting the newest capabilities to the warfighter."

The Expo and TIM provides an opportunity to learn more about functionality and interoperability of modular open system environments in both the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) and the Sensors Open System Architecture (SOSA) consortia. This is the first joint exposition and TIM for these consortia.
