Elbit System of America Gives New Life to Existing F-16 HUD While Improving Reliability and Maintainability


Elbit Systems of America company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd., was awarded a five-year, firm-fixed price contract valued at approximately $29 million by the United States Air Force (USAF) for logistics support of USAF's F-16 head-up display (HUD) electric module assemblies. The contract will be performed by Elbit Systems of America's subsidiary International Enterprises Industries, LLC in Talladega, Alabama.


"The F-16 electric module assembly contract was part of a Value Added Engineering Change Proposal (VECP) we presented in support of the USAF and their F-16's HUD system," stated Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of Elbit Systems of America. "We have a dedicated team of innovative engineers committed to solving obsolescence issues. By designing a modern electronic system that operates with the current optics of the HUD, we are able to provide the Air Force with an affordable, reliable solution for their diminishing manufacturing source and obsolescence concerns. The result is a substantial increase in operational availability."
