Elbit’s BrightNite declared operational

Elbit Systems delivered its BrightNite System for Puma 330 external link helicopters of an Air Force of a NATO country after it was declared operational.

The BrightNite system adds a multi-spectral, multi-sensor array – fusing multiple day and night thermal cameras – installed in the helicopter’s nose, to obtain a panoramic picture arc in front of the pilot. This picture is displayed in real-time to the pilots using binocular display.

BrightNite utilizes unified location-based information culled from a wide Field Of View to display crystal clear images, regardless of visibility conditions.

The system can present information to multiple pilots simultaneously on an intuitive multi-functional display.
