Helmet Display and
Sight technologies developed by Elbit Systems has become a necessity in
modern air warfare. With over 5,500 systems delivered to customers

was the company's first integrated helmet mounted display and sight system,
already operating with over 500 aircraft such as F-15, F-18, F-5 and MiG-21.
DASH is measuring the pilot's line of sight (LOS), slaving missiles and
sensors to the target, DASH also brings displays to the pilot's eye-level
and informs the pilot of target location, while integrating all modes of
operation with Hands On Throttle And Stick (HOTAS) controls.
Systems' fixed wing Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) technology provides the
basis for the U.S. Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS)
program. Through the joint venture with Kaiser Electronics, Vision Systems
International Inc (VSI) is equipping all frontline U.S. fighters (F-16,
F/A-18, F-15 and F-22) with the advanced helmet mounted display and sight.
Additionally, VSI was selected by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company to be
its HMD source for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).
pilots, Elbit offers several HMD Systems. Following its recent purchase of
the IHADSS (helmet sights used with AH-64 Apache attack helicopter)
line of business from Honeywell, Elbit Systems has established a substantial
position in the Attack Rotorcraft HMD market.
is used extensively with utility rotorcraft platforms enabling head-out
flight by displaying critical flight information collimated with the outside
world on the pilot's NVG.
(Modular Integrated Display And Sight Helmet) allows helicopter pilots to
fly head out day and night while receiving flight mission information and
weapon targeting symbology using the pilot's line of sight tracking system.
modular day/night HMD provides attack, assault and utility helicopter pilots
with wide fields of view (FOV), see-through binocular night imagery, flight
information and LOS cueing for day and night operation.
