Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) will provide EHUD, air combat maneuvering instrumentation system (ACMI) to the Israeli Air Force to be used by the Corps’ training between combat aircraft and the Lavi training aircraft.
The Israeli Air Force has ordered the ACMI systems from IAI’s MALAM division. EHUD will be mounted on the corps’ various combat aircraft as part of the training schedule until the installation of fixed systems. In this way, the 4th generation combat aircraft will be able to undertake combat scenarios with the Lavi, which are already equipped with the EHUD communication system.
According to IAI announcement, the use of EHUD opens the door for shared live drills and debriefing with the Lavi aircraft based on the EHUD network, as is already carried out by other countries, such as Italy. This, thanks to IAI’s capacity to perform LVC (Live, Virtual, Constructive) drills with the newest and most advanced generation of EHUD.
In addition to this application, IAI is providing on-demand training services, assigning training experts to run and oversee the debriefing systems in a range of the air force activities.
To date, over 1,000 air combat maneuvering instrumentation systems were shipped as well as hundreds of debriefing systems. EHUD is also the standard ACMI of NATO nations.
