The Defense Logistics Agency has awarded Elbit Systems of America a contract for production support of the Aviator's Night Vision Imaging System Heads-Up Display, Elbit announced today.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract includes an initial order for $17.9 million until 2023 and has a maximum value of $50 million over a five-year period for the production of spare parts in support of the ANVIS HUD, according to an Oct. 7 press release.

"The ANVIS HUD is Elbit Systems of America's current day and night display that connects to the helmets of Army helicopter pilots," the release states. "The system presents important information in front of the pilot's eyes, such as altitude, speed and heading. The ANVIS HUD allows the pilot's head to remain upright and looking out of the aircraft, with all applicable information presented before the eye, instead of looking down or inside the cockpit to view information from various sensors."
