Elbit Systems Wins $6.5M State Dept. Contract for Mi24, Mi8

Full Mission/Full Motion Simulators for Uzbekistan Air Force are Part of US Support for Operation Enduring Freedom

Elbit Systems has been awarded a $6.5 million contract from the U.S. State Department to supply the Uzbekistan Air Force with two Full Mission/Full Motion Simulators for its Mi24 and Mi8 helicopters.

Elbit Systems' advanced simulators will be used to train helicopter pilots and co-pilots, as part of a high-priority project to enhance border security and ensure continued support to Operation Enduring Freedom. The contract is to be performed over a two-year period.

The Full Mission Simulator provides training that covers every aspect of the helicopter's routine, emergency and mission operations for diverse scenarios.

It includes the simulation of a variety of flight conditions and tactical environment preparedness.

The high-end Full Motion Simulator, built on a moving structure, simulates the feeling of flight under various conditions, providing pilots with a realistic flight experience.

Turbulence and other physical parameters as well as oral cues, are simulated in order to maximize realism and minimize the transition to complex, actual missions.

Joseph Ackerman, President and CEO of Elbit Systems commented, "We are proud to play a role in the U.S. led Operation Enduring Freedom and to provide Uzbekistan with training tools in order to support the country's homeland security objectives.

Moreover, the fact that our Full Mission/Full Motion Simulators were chosen attests to the market recognition we have earned in the field of helicopter upgrades and further strengthens our position as a developer and supplier of high-end simulators. Simulators and trainers are an essential part of Elbit Systems' business strategy and we will continue to expand our activities in this market," Mr. Ackerman concluded.
