FORT WORTH, Texas, March 10 (UPI) -- A new display system for use by U.S. Air Force C-17 pilots in reduced visibility conditions is being developed by Elbit Systems of America LLC.

The terms and value of the award from the aircraft maker, Boeing, for the Replacement Head Up Display weren't disclosed but Elbit said the contract contains options for recurring production, depot support and repairs.

"We at Elbit Systems of America are proud to have been selected to incorporate our leading HUD technology into the world's most advanced airlift aircraft," said Raanan Horowitz, president and chief executive officer of Elbit Systems of America. "The selection by Boeing is a testimony to our world-class capabilities and dedication to supporting those who contribute daily to the safety and security of the United States."

Elbit said its HUD Computer Unit design includes cutting-edge processing and graphic capabilities to increase approach stability and pilot situational awareness.

Elbit Systems of America is a wholly owned subsidiary of Israel's Elbit Systems Ltd.
