TEL AVIV Oct 13 (Reuters) - Elbit Systems' (ESLT.O) U.S. subsidiary won a five-year, $68 million contract to supply the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines Corps and Coast Guard with head-up display components for pilots, the Israeli defence contractor said on Wednesday.

This is a follow-on to a $75 million contract awarded in September 2005.

The new display units increase situational awareness and safety by allowing pilots to fly "head out of the cockpit" during day and night operations, Elbit (ESLT.TA) said.
