Aero-TV: Elbit Systems Of America–Turning IFR Back Into VFR Via Enhanced Vision

A Pioneering Technology Company Helps Aviators Maintain Visual Reference Under The Worst Of Circumstances

Talk about a pedigree!!! In 1928, Paul Kollsman revolutionized aviation when he invented what has been described as the world’s first accurate barometric altimeter -- enabling pilots to fly “blind.”

Since that time, Kollsman Commercial Aviation Systems, now Elbit Systems of America Commercial Aviation - Kollsman, continues to do its utmost to revolutionize the aviation industry with solutions that enhance flight safety. Elbit Systems of America maintains a world-class team developing advanced aircraft systems such as enhanced vision systems (EVS,) enhanced flight vision systems (EFVS,) head up displays (HUD,) air data systems, and cabin pressurization systems in both performance and certifications.

One of their latest efforts... The Advanced Technology HUD (AT-HUD) is a head up display using state of the art LCD and optics technology to 'dramatically reduce system size and weight while maintaining optimum performance.' The HUD display unit provides an integrated display of PFD information overlaid with real-time EVS imagery conformal to the outside view. This results in minimized head down time and improved overall operational safety and situation awareness. The AT-HUD provides full FAA and EASA EFVS operational credit when paired with a high performance EFVS sensor such as the EVS II.
