The increase in commercial air traffic and the decline in aerial hours incorporated into pilot training programs in recent years resulted in higher demand for training tools and simulators with advanced technological capabilities, and an emphasis on the ability to train multiple personnel simultaneously.
Elbit is one of the leading companies in the field in Israel. EHUD is a simulator that allows multiple users to train simultaneously, and has been selected by 18 leading air forces in different countries on four continents, including NATO members. In 2014, Elbit was awarded the Blue Ribbon for Innovation from Military Training Technology Magazine, along with corporations such as L-3 Communications and Lockheed Martin.
Leading Israeli companies: SimiGon (F-35), Hartech Technologies, and ISREX.
