Elbit Systems of America will supply Integrated Helmet And Display Sight Systems (“IHADSS”) equipment for the AH-64 Apache helicopter fleet under a $76 million contract awarded by the US Army.
The Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) will be carried out over a five-year period. An initial delivery order of approximately $6 million has been issued, to be executed over a two-year period. The IHADSS parts will be delivered to the Army from Elbit Systems of America’s Fort Worth, Texas, engineering and manufacturing facility.
The Helmet and Display Systems present critical information directly in front of the pilot’s eye, providing the Apache pilots with a reliable solution that enables mission success and crew safety when flying.
In addition to the IHADSS for the Apache, Elbit Systems of America also provides the Apache AH-64E model with the Multicore Mission Processor, which is used to provide all of the functionality of the onboard Apache systems.
Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of Elbit Systems of America said the IHADSS is uniquely designed for the Apache. “It provides reliable situational awareness, eases the pilots’ workload, enhances their safety and achieves success when flying their most demanding missions.”
