  • Health monitoring capabilities for pilots . Non-invasive, real-time monitoring of pilot vital signs provides early warning and training for hypoxia and/or high G-force conditions. The Canary Pilot Health Monitoring system is fully integrated into Elbit Systems of America’s line of next-generation HMDs.
  • Advanced Crew Station (ACS) processes critical data . The F-15 next-generation cockpit solution reduces the pilot’s workload by providing critical data. The ACS optimizes tactical situation displays, processes advanced applications, and provides high-definition formats for advanced sensor video presentations.  
  • Cost-effective capabilities to engage moving or static targets in various conditions.  Elbit Systems of America’s small, lightweight precision munition seekers are highly accurate against stationary and high-speed moving targets. Laser seekers and sensors provide increased accuracy and flexibility and minimize potential for collateral damage.
  • Increased aircraft mission availability and reduced operating cost .  The company offers contractor logistic support services and cockpit upgrades for several military aircraft platforms.  These include site and depot level maintenance, material management, engineering services, aircraft modifications, and cockpit upgrades that sustain aircraft mission readiness.  Additionally, Elbit Systems of America’s subsidiary M-7 Aerospace LLC, through type certificate ownership, is the original equipment manufacturer of the RC-26/Metro aircraft.
  • Early missile warning threat detection and improved aircraft survivability . The combat-proven IR Missile Warning System for the F-16 aircraft provides pilots earlier and improved situational awareness of threats.
