Elbit wins USD 17m contract to provide BrightNite systems to NATO country air force

Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: ESLT) has been awarded a contract to supply multi spectral BrightNite systems to an air force in a NATO country, the company said.

The contract, in an amount of approximately USD 17 million, will be performed over a thirty-month period.

By projecting data on the pilot´s helmet, Brightnite enables helicopter pilots to fly in a degraded visual environment (DVE), in adverse weather conditions, and other factors limiting a pilot´s field of view. BrightNite delivers a clear visual of the landscape, flight data, and mission data, directly to both of the pilot´s eyes, enabling intuitive flight in a head-up, eyes-out orientation in pitch dark and other DVE and low visibility landing conditions.
