Elbit Systems will supply US Army signal processors for the pilot’s night vision system

31



The US Army will procure improved data signal processor processors from Elbit Systems for a total of $ 12,3 million. These processors convert electrical signals from helicopter sensors to display on night vision devices.

US Army specialists involved in helicopter avionics need special processors to convert electronic signals from helicopter sensors to display information on night-vision devices. Such processors they found in the US branch of Elbit Systems. Thus, Elbit was awarded a contract for $ 12,3 million for the supply of improved processors to convert data signals (Improved Signal Data Converter, ISDC), intended for helicopters of the US Army.



Electro-optic advanced data signal conversion processors Elbit Systems is part of a pilot's night vision thermal imaging system projecting instrument readings on a collimator indicator (Aviators Night Vision Imaging System Heads Up Display, ANVIS / HUD). She has day and night displays that improve flight safety and situational awareness by reducing the need for a pilot to move her head and translate her gaze while inspecting the cockpit. The system helps pilots to perform difficult maneuvers in bad weather and in conditions of poor visibility, at low altitudes or in difficult night operations. According to a representative from Elbit, more than 14 different models of US military helicopters totaling about 3000 rotary-wing machines are equipped with ESA ANVIS / HUD systems.


According to a press release from the US Department of Defense, this two-year contract must be completed by April 9 of 2016.

              Really? They are going to create a caliphate on the basis of the territory of Syria, Iraq and Jordan, t / e we are already talking about changing the status of Syria. To be honest, the drum goals of the rebels in Syria and Ukraine, my friends are not there, but we will be objective in Syria and Ukraine, there are speeches of the broad masses of the population against the central government. And you can pick up any slogans for this. (IMHO)

          Hi Oleg, what did you want to say in the collimator? On the Mi-28N, the visualization system was being worked out. But my personal opinion is superfluous. Especially on American systems, there have been repeated failures.

        In the photo you submitted, the problem was solved systemically incorrectly. That is, the helmet is equipped with an entire light conversion system. The pilot is already turning his head as if wound up, he really lacks a hefty bald before his eyes, and an extra strain on his neck! In addition, you need to adapt all this to the lighting of the cabin, which is absolutely unnecessary.
        Cameras should stand under the belly of the helicopter and have capabilities incompatible with miniature wearable systems. The converter must also take its place stationary, and not on the pilot's head! The helmet should only have a visor with a display. At the very least, this will greatly increase the capabilities of the system, if only because limiting miniaturization is not needed.
        I can give out another terrible secret. In fact, there are panoramic cameras capable of delivering an image right from 360 degrees of view and without any rotation at all. Moreover, the image from them can be enlarged almost unlimitedly, selected sector-wise and zoomed in, zoomed in .... Using such cameras would revolutionize the control of the helicopter. Only now I suspect that the military is generally not aware of the existence of such technologies ...

      Yes, it seems like we have normal electronics.
      According to Globs"Israeli company Risko has completed the installation of the latest in-house security system at the new Arena Patanal stadium in Cuiaba, which will host four matches of the championship group stage, including the Russia-South Korea match.
      In addition to the system of control over what is happening at the stadium, the company has equipped the arena with an automatic control system for entrances, gates and doors, which allows to regulate human flows in order to avoid crowding in case of emergency. The new systems received a FIFA license for use in the World Cup and other competitions under the auspices of this organization.
      It is possible that in the cities where the World Cup is held, the GroundEyeTM security system, recently presented by the Elbit concern, will also be used, designed to control and monitor mass events over a large area. Recently, the system was tested for the first time in a real environment. With her help, Brazilian law enforcement agencies controlled the situation during the traditional carnival in the city of Salvador da Bahia.

    In general, there is nothing surprising in the success of the Israelis. Their very life forces them to invent effective means of armed struggle against very sickly opponents, and this same life rejects everything that is beautiful only on paper, and in battle it turns out to be bullshit. In addition, Israel has access to the Western market of hardware and software, which allows it not to disperse its resources, but to focus on the most necessary. It is not for nothing that many high-tech companies in the United States invest billions of dollars to develop the branches of their high-tech firms in Israel. Add to this the well-known enterprise of the Israelis and you will get an oil painting.
    About kickbacks. I do not know a single country where there would be no corruption. There is it in Israel, and in the States, and even, they say, in Russia. What to do While a person is alive and money can not even destroy this infection with dust.

    Double translation. First, from English, then from cave Russian (the translator understands English words, but absolutely does not understand what it is about). That is, the Americans had a night vision system on helicopters, simply IR cameras that transmit data to the helmet. And from the whole system, only cameras remained ... Silicon Valley, oh oh request ... was unable to provide video conversion work ?! With civil DVRs, does it work with hammer reliability? I wonder how much the Pentagon drank on a military order for this system, that the Jews got as many 12 millions? At least two lard ...
    If we take the article as a basis, the Americans still mastered the good wires for transmission. That is, it remains to take the registrar's board, adjust the software, add some functions (where is the horizon in the photo where is it formed, in the same place?) And strengthen it by power, to counter jumps that are unavoidable in flight conditions, that is, powerful and not very stable consumers.
    No, the Israelis are great. But this problem for two students could not be solved in the USA! Forks ... By the way, they recently repaired something in the security system of one of our company. It supplies night vision devices. The main market is the USA! So IR cameras there also see non-local ...
