Elbit Systems HUDs for IAF's new F-16Is
22 November 2001
Elbit Systems' subsidiary, El-Op Electro-optics Industries (El-Op), will supply Lockheed Martin with Head-Up Displays (HUDs) for the Israeli Air Force's (IAF) F-16I aircraft. Lockheed Martin's order is expected to exceed $7 million for deliveries over a four-year period.
The supply of the HUDs for the IAF F-16I aircraft is in addition to Elbit Systems' overall participation in Lockheed Martin's F-16s programmes. As previously announced by the Company, Elbit Systems is expected to supply equipment to Lockheed Martin for F-16 aircraft of the IAF and other customers in the overall amount of approximately $140 million.
El-Op's Wide Field Of View (WFOV) HUD system for the IAF F-16I aircraft uses new technologies, and is based upon the company's previous experience in the design and production of more than 2000 Head-Up Displays for numerous types of aircraft.
Chief Executive Officer of Elbit Systems, Joseph Ackerman, said, " We believe that El-Op's HUD presence in the F-16I programme will allow further expansion of our F-16 business to include other customers of Lockheed Martin.''
