Elbit to supply Skylens display to planemaker ATR

JERUSALEM, July 6 (Reuters) - Israeli defense electronics firm Elbit Systems said on Monday it signed a contract to supply its latest wearable head-up display to regional planemaker ATR to assist pilots of the new ATR-600 series.

Elbit's Skylens device, worn like ski goggles, displays high-resolution symbols and video on a transparent visor, allowing pilots to take off and land in low visibility conditions such as fog with less dependence on airport instruments.

ATR, a joint venture between Airbus and Finmeccanica, will be the launch customer for Skylens. Certification is expected by 2017.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. (Reporting by Ari Rabinovitch)
