US Navy awards Elbit Systems of America USD 50m contract for HDTS, CCIP mission processor

Elbit Systems of America, LLC, was awarded an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract for approximately USD 50m by the US Navy to provide the Helmet Display and Tracker System (HDTS) with the Continuously Computed Impact Point (CCIP) algorithm for the MH-60S fleet, the company said.

This award represents the Navy´s first production order for the line-of-sight helmet tracking system, and the integration of targeting symbology in the Armed Helicopter Weapon System (AHWS) for the MH-60S fleet.

The HDTS systems includes day/night helmet mounted displays that provide full color symbology. In addition, the advanced processor allows a weapon impact symbol to be continuously displayed on the pilot´s and crew´s visors for improved deployment accuracy.
