Israel’s Elbit Systems, has announced a contract award worth US$27 million from a South Asian Navy for its EHUD Air Combat Manoeuvring Instrumentation (EHUD ACMI) air-to-air combat training systems.

Deliveries will take place over a two year period and the contract also includes three years of follow-on availability-based maintenance.

“We are proud to supply advanced combat training capabilities to the customer’s Navy, following the successful operation of these systems by its Air Force. Elbit Systems is the Israel Defense Forces’ training and simulation house and our continued investment in this area together with the extensive operational experience we have accumulated, enable us to stay well ahead of the curve, also to the benefit of our international customers,” said Yoram Shmuely, General Manager of Elbit Systems’ Aerospace Division.

While, Elbit Systems has not named the customer, it is thought to be the Indian Navy and the EHUD ACMI systems being procured will be operated from the Navy’s shore bases as well as onboard aircraft carriers.

EHUD ACMI offers advanced air-to-air combat training capabilities, including features such as real-time hit notification and removal, real-time Electronic Warfare (EW) and air-to-air weapons delivery, simulation and advanced debriefing.

The system supports an unlimited number of live networked participants, through Elbit Systems’ data-link protocol that also allows interoperability with existing EHUD ACMI systems operated by the customer.

The EHUD ACMI training systems are currently operated by numerous Air Forces across four continents, including several NATO countries.
