"First Look, First Shot"
Vision Systems International will demonstrate the advanced
cueing, display and modularity of its Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing
System (JHMCS) next month at the Paris Air Show.
JHMCS provides pilots with a “First look, first
shot” capability when employed with high off-boresight
weapons under high-g conditions. The system allows pilots to
lock-on and fire at enemy aircraft without having to maneuver their
aircraft into position. The pilot needs only to point his head at
the target and weapon systems are automatically cued to the target.
JHMCS is also highly effective when used in air-to-ground target
engagements and was used extensively in this manner in support of
Operation Iraqi Freedom. In both air-to-air and air-to-ground
modes, targeting cues and aircraft parameters are displayed on the
VSI is currently in full rate
production on the JHMCS and has delivered over 900 systems for the
U.S military’s F-15, F-16, and F-18 platforms, as well as a
number of international platforms.
VSI, a joint venture between EFW Inc. a subsidiary of Elbit
Systems and Rockwell Collins, was formed in 1996 to pursue fixed
wing helmet mounted display (HMD) opportunities worldwide. In
addition to production of JHMCS and DASH (Display and Sight Helmet)
Generation IV HMDs, VSI is in development on the advanced helmet
mounted display for the F-35 (JSF) under contract to Lockheed
