Head-up display avionics replacement units for Air Force C-17 cargo jets to come from Elbit Systems
FORT WORTH, Texas, 15 March 2011. Military avionics designers at the Boeing Co. Defense, Space & Security segment needed replacement head-up displays for the C-17 Globemaster III cargo jet. They found their solution from Elbit Systems of America LLC in Fort Worth, Texas. Elbit avionics engineers will develop the C-17 replacement head up display (RHUD) for the U.S. Air Force C-17 fleet.
The RHUD enhancements also easier to maintain than the HUDs they replace, have advanced optic with a wide field of view, and digital image source (DIS) to make the most image quality. The HUD COMPUTER UNIT (CU) has Elbit processing and graphic capabilities and a service-port to access and acquire built-in-test results.
