Elbit Systems' new TARGO helmet mounted avionics technology

Elbit Systems introduces TARGOTM: complete mission lifecycle helmet-mounted avionics (HMA) technology for planning, rehearsing, flying and debriefing missions

Elbit Systems recently unveiled its TARGO™ Helmet-Mounted Avionics (HMA) Technology. TARGO™ offers new and wider markets access to advanced helmet-mounted technologies. It will be showcased at the upcoming 2009 Paris Air Show.

With Targo™, customers enjoy a range of capabilities that can be tailored to specific aviator needs in a much wider spectrum of aircraft than ever before. Targo™ is easily integrated into any aircraft's avionics. It offers all the benefits of prior HMDs along with unprecedented avionics functionalities, all helmet-based. Equipped with off-visor display for safest flying and click-on day, night and simulation modules, Targo™ delivers complete mission lifecycle technology, allowing pilots to plan, rehearse, fly and debrief missions using their personal helmets. HMA was developed to meet the most demanding missions and markets. This cutting-edge technology delivers all mission-critical avionics and advanced features directly to the pilot, increasing safety levels and operational capabilities. Through unique flexible setups, from complete stand-alone, zero-installation versions to fully integrated configurations, Targo™ introduces a new realm of advanced, affordable avionics implemented directly into aviators' helmets.

Completely customizable, Targo's™ cutting-edge avionics promote mission excellence through four packages tailored to address the specific needs of fighters, trainers, airlifters, utility and emergency services aviators (both rotary and fixed wing.)

Targo's™ capabilities and options are aimed at increasing pilot situational awareness and enhancing force coordination. Among Targo's™ advanced features are: On Deck Networking: to facilitate the sharing of mission-critical information between multiple users. Real-Time Mission Advisor: with pop-up mission advisory information and on-demand database viewer, users can track mission tasks and accurately monitor performance. Line-Of-Sight (LOS) Sharing: to allow users to share targets and points of interest. Targo™ SkyMatch: user friendly software tools to customize system interfaces, display symbols and more. These value-added features based on leading-edge HMA technology bring the power of advanced avionics to the aviator's helmet at an affordable cost.

The systems will be marketed through Elbit Systems and its subsidiary, Vision Systems International, LLC (VSI), a joint venture with Rockwell Collins.
