Vision Systems International (VSI), the joint venture company of Rockwell Collins and Elbit Systems of America, is displaying the advanced helmet-mounted display system (HMDS) of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and other helmet display systems at its Farnborough International airshow.

F-35 manufacturer Lockheed Martin has recently reported progress with three fixes intended to mitigate night-vision, latency and jitter problems identified by Joint Strike Fighter pilots with the Gen II HMDS.

The joint venture also is displaying its Targo HMD and joint helmet-mounted cueing system (JHMCS). The Targo helmet display is a low-cost solution for light-attack, airlift and trainer aircraft. The JHMCS, VSI’s first product, is a joint U.S. Air Force and Navy helmet-mounted display qualified on the F-15, F-16 and F/A-18 fighters. Over 4,000 systems have been fielded, according to VSI (Hall 2 Stand B15).
