HAIFA, Israel, May 20, 2016 — Elbit Systems Ltd. has announced the BrightNite multispectral panoramic solution for helicopters’ degraded visual environment missions. Compact and cost-effective, the system is a piloting solution that delivers essential data directly to the eyes of a pilot, enabling intuitive flight in pitch dark and other degraded conditions. It is comprised of nongimbaled, uncooled FLIR and highly sensitive CMOS sensors that present an ultrawide field of regard intuitive image to a display system. The system processes real-time panorama video, enhanced by a 3D conformal mission symbology concept and transmits high-resolution video to the helmet-mounted display. BrightNite utilizes unified location-based information culled from a wide field of view to display clear images in zero visibility and zero latency, enabling helicopters to successfully execute missions in more than 90 percent of the nights.
