Elbit Systems has successfully completed a series of night flight demonstrations with the digital eye piece (DEP), designed to improve situational awareness and meet operational needs of military aviators.

Developed in cooperation with Elbit Systems of America, and Rockwell Collins through their joint venture RCEVS, DEP is a lightweight night vision cueing and display solution for the joint helmet mounted cueing system (JHMCS), which is currently in service in several European countries.

During the flights, the company validated DEP's performance in night flight, including air-to-air and air-to-ground scenarios, in which effective flight missions generally cannot be executed.

"Several international air forces took part in the flights onboard their F-16 aircraft."

This plug-and-play solution can also be installed onboard any fielded JHMCS, Digital JHMCS (D-JHMCS), and JHMCS-II helmet mounted display (HMD) systems without making any changes to the aircraft or software.

The system transforms existing HMDs and night vision goggles (NVGs) into highly advanced, cutting-edge night vision smart helmets, thereby providing pilots with daytime cueing and display capabilities during night operations.

In February this year, the company showcased DEP at the 32nd Annual Air Force Association Air Warfare and Technology Exposition this year.

The company has also displayed DJHMCS, which provides aviators with immediate and accurate recognition of friendly units, threats, and unknown targets.
