Elbit Systems delivers BrightNite to NATO country
The BrightNite system is designed to overcome visibility limitations and enable pilots to safely and effectively fly helicopters in pitch black and degraded visibility environment conditions, including poor weather, brownouts, whiteouts and sandstorms.
BrightNite transmits high-resolution video to the pilot's helmet-mounted display, allowing pilots to fly in a head-up, eyes-out position. The system processes real-time panorama video, pre-loaded terrain and obstacle information enhanced by a 3D conformal and intuitive symbology.
The system utilises unified location-based information culled from a wide field of view to display crystal clear images, regardless of visibility conditions. It can present information to multiple pilots simultaneously on an intuitive multi-functional display.
