“JHMCS II is more intelligent, more capable and more affordable,” said Mark Hodge, Vice President Business Development of Elbit Systems of America, LLC, “We worked alongside warfighters to create a superior system that improves information access for the flight crew.”

The JHMCS product line has evolved to be considered the best, field-proven technology available in providing the pilot with intelligent vision. For over 15 years, the JHMCS has been a combat-proven helmet-mounted display for fixed-wing aircraft, including F/A-18, F-15, and the F-16.

The JHMCS II product family has been developed to meet the needs of the modern military aircrew and provide a superior level of situational awareness. Flight crews fly JHMCS around the world and during combat operations. “Pilots flying with JHMCS II will have a decided advantage when they observe, orient, decide and act,” said Hodge.

About JHMCS II

JHMCS II is a low cost, low integration helmet mounted display (HMD) solution designed for new aircraft installation and as an upgrade / ECP enhancement solution for aircraft already equipped with JHMCS. Both of these solutions provide visor projected color video & symbology in a well-balanced lightweight HMD and provide market leading capabilities in both day and night environments.

There are two versions of the JHMCS II product line, Digital JHMCS and JHMCS II: For existing aircraft equipped with JHMCS classic, Digital JHMCS is an economical but significant upgrade. Using many of the existing components, and requiring no software changes, Digital JHMCS has the “all new” aspects of JHMCS II, and the benefits it brings, with the added benefit of very easy retrofit.

Digital JHMCS II is a simple ‘plug and play’ upgrade solution for the over 6000 JHMCS solutions already delivered. JHMCS II provides a new optical-inertial tracker and replaces the JHMCS subsystems with a lightweight Aircraft Interface Unit (ACIU). JHMCS II works with any aircraft and any aircraft architecture. Both Digital JHMCS and JHMCS II share common design attributes that are new and improved over classic JHMCS.
