Canary to Assist Pilots in Recovering from Life Threatening Situations
FREMONT, CA: Elbit Systems, a manufacturer of defense electronic and electro-optic systems, launched Canary, an integrated physiological monitoring device to aid pilots during hypoxia and Gravity induced loss of Consciousness (G-LOC).
Canary is built with sensors from LifeBEAM, an innovative wearables company for aerospace and defense industry. Canary displays audio or visual warnings on the pilot’s helmet-mounted display (HMD) or aircraft mission computer during extreme situations such as hypoxia or G-LOC. The alert will allow pilot to react before losing conscious, in case of inability to react, Canary aids recovery of the pilot and the aircraft by engaging autopilot.
The Israeli Ministry of Defense (MoD) has backed the product development, and Canary will be integrated into Elbit Systems' helmet and HMD equipment
"Modern aircraft may cause GLOC and other physiological conditions (extreme fatigue, dehydration, etc.), which are a common cause for accidents with no reliable warning or recovery solution available,” said Yoram Shmuely, GM, Aerospace, Elbit Systems. "We believe that our new system will solve these problems and save pilots' lives."
Elbit Systems introduces BrightNite
Elbit Systems unveils BrightNite, a solution for Degraded Visual Environment (DVE) mission assisting utility helicopters during night flying situations. It enables a new level of operational flight providing piloting capabilities of attack helicopters.
BrightNite is a multi-spectral end to end panoramic piloting solution that delivers the essential data directly to both eyes of the pilot, enabling intuitive flight in a head-up, eyes-out orientation in pitch dark and other DVE conditions.
The display is overlaid by a synthetic layer that follows the contours of the landscape and a third layer of 3D conformal symbology, which displays hazards, mission conformal symbology and tactical data. Using a single sensor and the synthetic world multiple crew-members can simultaneously scan the entire field of regard, enabling them to fly in common Line-Of-Sight (LOS).
