Complex flight missions with large crews, diverse communication needs and multiple technologies require advanced and reliable communication management solutions.

To address these needs, Orbit Communications Systems has successfully integrated the company’s 3D Audio into Elbit Systems’ Helmet Mounted Display (HMD).

Elbit Systems’ HMD, displays flight data, sensors and 3D location-based information, and allows pilots to operate the aircraft’s sensors and missiles simply by looking at the target, and similarly, enable aircraft sensors and other relevant information to be spatially presented.

Suitable for operation in both day and night environments, pilots using Elbit Systems’ HMD have a decisive edge in mission effectiveness while enhancing situational awareness, precision, safety and survivability.

The integration of Orbit’s 3D Audio into Elbit Systems’ HMD provides directional audio cues to ground and air threats in full correlation to the visual cues on the visor.

The combination of audio and visual cues allows pilots to pinpoint a threat more rapidly, in the space surrounding the aircraft, while radio separation improves situational awareness.

Orbit’s 3D Audio delivers a 360-degree clear audio experience with significant benefits for pilots, including increased situational awareness and flight safety, as well as reduced workload and fatigue.

Applications include radio separation, crew positioning, directional safety alerts and real-time threat alerts aligned to the pilot’s line of sight.
