Elbit Systems announced that its Helicopter Skylens wearable head-up display recently completed a series of flight tests in its final configuration mode.

Entering the final flight test stages, the Skylens demonstrated a fully operational configuration with a wider field of view, higher resolution and an upgraded tracking system depicting synthetic vision as well as EVS video imagery.

The systems were tested during day and night, in a range of locations demonstrating a variety of maneuvers such as rooftop landings and oil rig approaches above the sea, in order to simulate real operational flight conditions during SAR, EMS and rig transportation missions.

Helicopter Skylens system provides the aircrew with a true “out of the cockpit” view, displaying flight symbology for day and night operation in severe weather conditions. In limited visibility conditions, the pilot is able to fly eyes out due to the wide field of regard display. The system is packed in a lightweight, easy-to-install device.
