Supporting the National Guard's Mission: Elbit Systems of America's Advanced Capabilities and Solutions on Display at NGAUS

FORT WORTH, Texas, August 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Elbit Systems of America, LLC, will highlight its portfolio of advanced capabilities and solutions for National Guard Soldiers and Airmen at the 2017 National Guard Association of the United States (NGAUS) General Conference & Exhibition. This year's event will take place Sept. 7-10 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, Ky. Elbit Systems of America's exhibit will be located in booth 1025.

"The National Guard performs many unique missions critical to our communities and our country," said Raanan Horowitz, president and CEO of Elbit Systems of America. "Our company is committed to helping the National Guard perform their missions to keep America safe by providing them the very best in advanced technologies, capabilities and solutions."

Examples of the company's advanced technologies, capabilities and solutions for improving mission effectiveness and readiness include:

        - Enhanced pilot and aircrew situational awareness for flight missions during day,
          night and degraded visual environment.  Through the advanced technology of the Digital
          Eye Piece, National Guard pilots flying the F-15 and F-16 aircraft are able to
          transition easily from day to night operations while in flight, providing the
          advantage of a 24/7 helmet mounted display capability. In addition, BrightNite offers
          a multi-spectral panoramic solution that assists pilots in flying and landing in
          degraded weather conditions by delivering crystal-clear visuals of the landscape,
          flight data, and mission data to both eyes of the pilot. SKYLENS displays
          high-resolution flight information, images, and video on a high transparency visor.

        - Cost-effective capabilities to engage moving or static targets in various
          conditions.  Elbit Systems of America's small, lightweight precision munition seekers
          are highly accurate against stationary and high-speed moving targets. Laser seekers
          and sensors provide increased accuracy and flexibility and minimize potential for
          collateral damage.

        - Increased aircraft mission availability and reduced operating cost.  The company
          offers contractor logistic support services and cockpit upgrades for several military
          aircraft platforms.  These include site and depot level maintenance, material
          management, engineering services, aircraft modifications, and cockpit upgrades that
          sustain aircraft mission readiness.  Additionally, Elbit Systems of America's
          subsidiary, M-7 Aerospace LLC, through type certificate ownership, is the original
          equipment manufacturer of the RC-26/Metro aircraft.

        - Early missile warning threat detection and improved aircraft survivability. The
          combat-proven IR Missile Warning System for the F-16 aircraft offers Air National
          Guard pilots earlier and improved situational awareness of threats.

Employees of Elbit Systems of America are entrusted with performing high-quality work knowing that it protects and saves lives. In addition to providing advanced technology capabilities and solutions for the National Guard and the U.S. military services, the company also provides situational awareness capabilities for U.S. border patrol agents and commercial aviation pilots, as well as life-saving medical instrumentation technologies.
