Elbit Systems of America will perform logistics work on head-up display electric module assemblies for the U.S. Air Force‘s fleet of F-16 fighter jets under a five-year, $29 million contract.

Raanan Horowitz, president and CEO of Elbit Systems of America, said Tuesday that the company’s engineers will focus on work to address potential obsolescence issues the Air Force faces with the technology.

The F-16’s head-up display contains an optical lens assembly, a combiner and a computer interface.

“F-16 pilots rely on their HUD for situational awareness and targeting during critical missions, ” Horowitz said.

“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, ” he added.

Elbit Systems of America will focus on the HUD electronic system and the company’s International Enterprises Industries subsidiary will perform the work.
