Commercial off-the-Shelf avionics upgrades

Leveraging its strong position in the aircraft upgrade market and the recent acquisition of Universal Avionics (“UA”), Elbit Systems plans to showcase at the upcoming Farnborough International Airshow a unique offering of commercial systems for military upgrade programs.

Defense budget constraints and a growing requirement to comply with civilian airspace regulations drive a rising demand for commercial cockpit solutions for military platform upgrades. Cost efficiencies, shorter time to market and full compliance with Communications, Navigation, and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) regulations make Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) avionics optimal for upgrading military platforms.


Addressing these growing needs, Elbit Systems, together with its wholly owned subsidiary Universal Avionics, present a unique portfolio of COTS CNS/ATM compliant solutions for upgrading Para-military and military aircraft, including helicopters, transporters and special mission aircraft.

The offering that will be showcased in the Company booth #1354 (Hall 1) at Farnborough includes Universal Avionics’ Flight Management Systems (FMS), a Primary Flight Display system, and communication systems, alongside Elbit’ own product line of Enhanced Flight Vision Systems (EFVS), Heads-Up Display (HUD) and wearable HUD.

Yoram Shmuely, EVP and General Manager of Elbit Systems’ Aerospace Division, commented: “Our leadership in the field of upgrading military platforms our technological edge in the commercial aviation area, together with UA’s portfolio, enable us to promote this unique offering that is optimally suited to address the evolving market trends.”
