VSI wins $19.8 million Joint Program Office contract to deliver, support Night Vision Cueing Displays for U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy pilots

SAN JOSE, Calif., 30 March 2012. Vision Systems International (VSI), maker of advanced helmet-mounted displays (HMDs) for tactical aircraft, won a $19.8 million contract to deliver and provide engineering support for Night Vision Cueing Display (NVCD) systems. VSI personnel are expected to deliver 100 NVCD systems by Nov. 2013 under this NVCD low-rate initial production lot two (LRIP-2) contract. VSI engineers are also modifying the HMD test set to accommodate additional NVCD capability.

"With this award, additional front line U.S. pilots will have access to technology that delivers Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System capability to night missions," says Phil King, VSI’s president. VSI's NVCD technology will be integrated into domestic Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) platforms for use on U.S. Air Force F-15 and F-16 planes, as well as Navy F/A-18 JHMCS-equipped aircraft.

VSI is a joint venture between Elbit Systems of America, a subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ:ESLT) and Rockwell Collins (NYSE:COL). VSI has produced more than 4,500 joint helmet mounted cueing systems (JHMCS) for the F-15, F-16, and F/A-18 aircraft. VSI is also under contract to deliver the Fifth Generation HMDS for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. VSI produces JHMCS II HMDs for multiple aviation platforms, including fighters, light attack, military airlift, and trainers.
