FORT WORTH, Texas, May 12, 2013
FORT WORTH, Texas, May 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Understanding the need to
strengthen the bond with our Special Operation Forces, Elbit Systems of
America, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd., is presenting
its innovative special operations solutions in booth #1334 during the 2013
Special Operations Forces Industry Conference at the Tampa Convention Center
in Tampa, Florida, May 14-16, 2013.
Using demonstrations, video presentations, and product displays, Elbit Systems
of America will depict the successful integration of systems available to
empower Special Operations Forces. Dedicated to those who contribute daily to
the safety and security of our nation, Elbit Systems of America's innovative
and affordable solutions offer SOF operators the winning edge they deserve.
Elbit Systems of America will present the Large Area Display (LAD), Skylark®
I-LE Block II, C-130 cockpit solutions including the Digital Air Transport
Head Up Display, and the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System II^TM (JHMCS II).
SOFIC visitors to the booth may also examine Advanced Communication Power
Amplifiers, a JTAC LTD, and Rattler-P. Supporting our forces, Elbit Systems of
America provides enhanced situational awareness with increased reliability and
Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System II^TM
The Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System II (JHMCS II) is the successor Helmet
Mounted Display (HMD) to the JHMCS program. A low cost, low integration
Intelligent Vision HMD solution, the JHMCS II is available in two models: the
JHMCS II-M and JHMCS II-H. The JHMCS II-M offers magnetic tracking and works
with existing JHMCS subsystems. The JHMCS II-H offers the same HMD performance
with an opto-inertial tracker. The JHMCS II-H replaces JHMCS subsystems with a
lightweight Aircraft Interface Unit which does not require cooling, a mounting
tray, or cockpit mapping.
Large Area Display (LAD)
Revolutionizing the functionality of cockpits, the LAD is a panoramic
high-definition display measuring up to 22". The LAD presents integrated high
performance flight and mission graphics onto a wider, slimmer, single screen.
Skylark® I-LE Block II
During SOFIC, Elbit Systems of America will also feature the Skylark® I-LE
Block II Unmanned Aircraft System. The Skylark offers cutting edge technology
designed to assist warfighters in fulfilling close range, tactical missions.
Based on lessons learned and operational experience accumulated with United
States Forces in Afghanistan, the Block II has an operational range up to 15
km, maintains approximately 3 hours of endurance and is designed to perform in
harsh environments such as high altitudes and gusting winds. The hand-launched
Skylark unmanned aircraft system offers covert flexibility, sharp imagery and
the ability to operate at any time day or night. A hand-launched unit, the
Skylark combines the characteristics normally reserved for larger unmanned
aircraft system within the form-factor of a man-portable system
Digital Air Transport Head Up Display (HUD)
In cooperation with its parent company, Elbit Systems Ltd., Elbit Systems of
America will present theC-130 Digital Air Transport HUD. The digital air
transport model is a technologically advanced overhead-mounted digital HUD,
optimized for military and commercial aircraft. The Digital Air Transport HUD
displays a FLIR picture in XGA resolution with overlaid symbology. This HUD
can provide improved situational awareness, increased safety, and enhanced
operational capabilities for the Special Operation Forces.
In addition to avionics and unmanned aircraft systems, Elbit Systems of
America will highlight high performance computing and communications
interoperability solutions and capabilities including the Dual Power
Amplifier, TC100L, TC-100D, and the TC150M.
Dual Avionics Power Amplifier
The Dual Aviation Power Amplifier provides two-way extended range
communications of both fielded and next-generation waveforms. The power
amplifier includes a 25W UHF/L-Band channel for next-generation Soldier Radio
Waveform (SRW) as well as a 50W channel for legacy Single Channel Ground and
Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS). The compact design of the Dual Aviation
Power Amplifier reduces platform size and weight constraints.
TC Family of Power Amplifiers
The TC-100L, TC-100D, and TC-150 power amplifiers are 100 and 150 watt power
amplifiers designed for the SATCOM uplink band with low noise and high dynamic
range. The TC-150 has additional multi-band capability providing 50W
Line-of-Sight (LOS) from 30 MHz to 512 MHz. Each power amplifier is designed
for continuous operation in a tactical environment. With a rugged,
weatherproof chassis, the amplifiers are capable of operation in vehicles,
shelters, aircraft, transit cases, and racks, or on the ground at the base of
the antenna mast.
The Sensor & Electro-Optics team will present the Joint Terminal Attack
Controller Laser Target Designator and Rattler-P. Each light weight device is
designed to enhance the Special Operation Forces' ability to successfully
accomplish their missions.
Joint Terminal Attack Controller Laser Target Designator (JTAC-LTD)
The JTAC-LTD, based on Rattler Laser technology, is one of the lightest weight
laser targeting/hand-off solutions available for foot mobile warfighters. With
the Direct View Optic, warfighters never have to attach and boresight an
external optic for day missions. Additionally, the 1-watt NIR pointer
boresighted to the 1064nm laser provides an organic night capability. The
JTAC-LTD also has a top rail and bottom rail grabber giving warfighters
options for stacking mission specific equipment.
At less than 3lbs, the Rattler-P is one of the lightest laser marking devices
in the world. The Rattler-P provides an immediately available hand-off
capability to Laser Spot Trackers with an intuitive and simple pistol design
and man-machine interface.
