Elbit Systems Unveils X-SIGHT Augmented Reality Visor for Vertical Lift


Elbit Systems unveils X-SIGHT augmented reality visor for vertical lift (helicopter/tilt-rotor aircraft). With an unparalleled field of view and high-resolution, color binocular display, X-Sight leverages sensor outputs to create and present an intuitive view of the aircraft’s operational surroundings. Fusing active sensor data with tactical flight and mission data, X-Sight creates an overlay of intuitive, 3D conformal symbology and Synthetic Vision Symbology (SVS), presented on top of visual sensor imagery. When supported by the helicopter’s sensors, X-Sight can also provide ‘transparent cockpit’ functionality, allowing pilots to see beyond cockpit boundaries, displaying a 360-degree view with no visual obstacles. In doing so, X-Sight delivers the ultimate situational awareness, optimizing mission capabilities, while increasing survivability, efficiency, and safety.

Realizing Elbit Systems’ proven operational flight concept, X-Sight presents aircrew with an enhanced, multi-layered panoramic image of the world outside the cockpit. The unified picture is comprised of both real and synthetic information, beginning with the aircraft visual sensors, including night vision sensor, Distributed Aperture Systems (DAS), Electro-Optic Payloads (EOP), X-Sight’s own integrated night vision camera, and more. The aircraft’s active sensors, including LIDAR, TF/TA Radar, obstacle warning systems, and others, are then used to create conformal 3D imagery. Enhancing the visual environment even further, X-Sight completes the real-world view with applications such as Synthetic Vision Symbology (SVS), Low Visibility Landing (LVL) symbology, obstacle awareness, collision avoidance, flight and mission symbology, virtual training, and more. The various layers of information are presented on the X-Sight advanced display, tailored to meet cutting-edge visual requirements.
