Elbit Systems Bags U.S. Army CHMD Contract
The United States Army has awarded Elbit Systems of America with a five-year Indefinite Delivery/ Indefinite Quantity contract for supply of a wide field of view Common Helmet Mounted Display (CHMD) system.
“Our CHMD provides advanced capabilities for Army aviators,” stated Raanan Horowitz, President And Chief Executive Officer of Elbit Systems of America. “Our solution ensures pilots experience crisp, clear and accurate symbology, which provides critical information during flight and a decisive edge in mission effectiveness.”
As part of the U.S. Army’s Air Soldier System, the new full colour CHMD will be used by helicopter flight crews to provide day and night enhanced situational awareness and survivability in all flight conditions. It will be fully-integrated into the Elbit Systems’ Helmet Display and Tracker System used onboard the U.S. Army’s CH-47F Chinook and the UH-60L/M/V Black Hawk fleets.
Deliveries of the production-ready and pilot-tested CHMD systems start in 15 months and the work will be performed in Fort Worth, Texas.
