Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) will provide the EHUD air combat maneuvering instrumentation (ACMI) system to the Israeli Air Force (IAF) to be used by the Corps' training between combat aircraft and the Lavi jet trainers. The IAF has ordered the ACMI systems from IAI's MALAM Division. The EHUD will be mounted on the IAF's 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.

The use of the EHUD opens the door for shared live drills and debriefing with the Lavi airplanes 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.

Jacob Galifat, General Manager of the IAI/MALAM Division, Missiles & Space Group, said, "MALAM provides training services to the IAF and supports multinational drills to allow our clients to experience the best, most modern training methods and make the most of every training sortie efficiently and accurately. Our technologies leverage the new, state-of-the-art capabilities of the EHUD and allow us to provide network support for LVC formats. This is a natural evolution of the long-standing EHUD system, which is deployed extensively across the globe."

To date, over 1,000 air combat maneuvering instrumentation systems were delivered by IAI as well as hundreds of debriefing systems. EHUD is also the standard ACMI of NATO nations.
