Indian Navy carrier pilot training to gain from EHUD
Elbit Systems is to provide its EHUD fully autonomous air combat manoeuvring instrumentation (ACMI) system to an undisclosed navy in South Asia.
Elbit announced the $27 million deal on 17 August. Its duration is two years, followed by a three-year period of availability-based maintenance.
The customer will operate EHUD from aircraft carriers as well as shore-based installations, Elbit stated.
Shephard believes the customer to be India, as no other South Asian navy operates aircraft carriers.
EHUD is a fully autonomous ACMI system designed to offer a combination of airborne combat training coupled with ground-based capabilities.
The system can be used for air-to-air, air-to-ground and EW training/debriefing.
EHUD also supports an unlimited number of live networked participants, through Elbit Systems’ data link protocol that also allows interoperability with existing EHUD ACMI systems operated by the customer.
According to Shephard Defence Insight, almost 20 customers worldwide operate EHUD.
