VSI Awarded $75.6 M Boeing Contract

HAIFA, Israel, Aug. 10 -- Vision Systems International LLC (VSI), Elbit Systems' joint venture with Rockwell Collins, has been awarded a $75.6 million contract for over 300 joint helmet-mounted cueing systems from Boeing, St. Louis.

VSI will provide display systems, spares, technical support and support equipment for the full-rate production lot 1 acquisition. Deliveries will begin in March 2005 and continue through December 2006.

The joint helmet-mounted cueing systems (JHMCS) allows pilots to lock-on and fire at enemy aircraft without having to maneuver their aircraft into position. A pilot needs only to point his head at a target, and weapon systems are automatically cued to it. In both air-to-air and air-to-ground modes, targeting cues and aircraft parameters are displayed on a pilot's visor.

VSI was established in 1996 as a joint venture between EFW Inc., a subsidiary of Elbit Systems, and Rockwell Collins to develop, manufacture and support fixed-wing head-mounted displays worldwide.
