MultiScan ThreatTrack Weather Radar, EVS-3000 Enhanced Vision System and HeliSure Situational Awareness system on display for first time at Farnborough
In celebration of the F-35 making its international debut, the Rockwell Collins ESA Vision Systems F-35 Lightning II Helmet Mounted Display System (HMDS) will be in the spotlight at the Farnborough Airshow 2014.
The F-35 HMDS provides pilots with unprecedented situational awareness. All the information that pilots need to complete their missions – through all weather, day or night – is projected on the helmet’s visor, an industry first. In addition, real-time imagery streamed from six infrared cameras mounted around the aircraft to the helmet, allows pilots to “look through” the airframe.
