Elbit Systems Displays at Farnborough 2012: New Capabilities for CockpitNG® Providing Enhanced Situational Awareness and Mission Management

Elbit Systems' CockpitNG®, the unique next generation cockpit for fighter aircraft, helicopters, trainers and airlifters offers new, advanced capabilities to be showcased at the upcoming Farnborough International Airshow 2012.


The new and upgraded version of the CockpitNG® is comprised of a large area display (LAD), a Low-Profile Head-up Display (LPHUD) and Elbit Systems Targo® Helmet Mounted Avionics system. New applications are projected on all elements of the CockpitNG®, displaying all relevant data while hiding the irrelevant information to prevent overload. In the new enhanced version presented, the high quality LAD touch-screen offers a unique concept of operation, enabling pilots to personalize their displays, applications and information with a sweep of a finger, according to specific mission requirements.


An advanced display fusion engine has been developed, enabling information to be fused in multiple layers, yet displayed in one place. The cutting-edge 3D map concept of operation, centered in large size, projects a 3D image of the world , viewing fused information from own-ship sensors and data-link members' sensors. The projection of fused synthetic and real pictures, videos, sensors and information makes any mission possible and supports successful achievement of enhanced mission goals in all weather conditions.


In the modern battlefield, where information and data management are crucial to mission success, the solution offered by Elbit Systems in the CockpitNG® provides an ideal suite for enhanced pilot situational awareness and improved mission management system.


Targo’s® cutting-edge technology delivers all mission-critical avionics and advanced applications directly to the helmet. Augmented reality achieved by a combination of real-time videos and synthetic data projected on the visor, enhances pilot situational awareness and increases operational success rates.


A complete integrated training suite is provided by combining Embedded Virtual Avionic's (EVA) synthetically simulated sensors, mission systems and weapons with the Large Area Display (LAD) and Targo®. This integrated training solution enables pilots to train in a live virtual constructive environment, enhancing operational readiness and reducing training costs. 


The Low-Profile Head–Up Display (LPHUD) is designed as a combined solution for cockpits containing a Large Area Display (LAD) due to its streamlined size and shape that requires less space than typical HUD designs. Providing sizeable enhancements for resolution, brightness, accuracy, reliability and maintainability compared to current HUDs, the LPHUD employs digital display technology (LCD-Raster display) and provides capability for video processing and image display functions, digital video interfaces, analog deflection interfaces and sensor display fusion growth provisions.
