Elbit Systems subsidiary EFW Inc. has been awarded a $57 million framework contract by the US government to supply the ANVIS/HUD for US Army utility helicopters and other rotary-wing platforms, the defense electronics company said Thursday. The ANVIS/HUD system provides a significant increase in situational awareness and safety by allowing the pilot to fly "head out of the cockpit" during night operations and projecting critical flight information into the night vision goggles' view. Under the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract contract, the army may place purchase orders with EFW for ANVIS/HUD systems at will for up to the aggregate amount of the contract, extending for a five-year period. "This award will allow EFW to continue the supply of operationally excellent systems for US pilots to safely and effectively execute their night missions," said Kelly Dameron, vice president of rotorcraft mission systems. Elbit reported that the system has been in operational use by US military helicopter pilots since the mid-1990s and is installed on most utility and special operations helicopter fleet platforms, including the H-60, CH-53 CH-47, CH-46, H-1 and V-22.
