VSI to Deliver JHMCS to U.S. Navy, Air Force and FMS

Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that its joint venture with Rockwell Collins, Vision Systems International, LLC (VSI), a leader in advanced Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) technology, has received a new contract with a total value of more than $32 million for the delivery of the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) to The Boeing Company, for the U.S. Navy and Air Force and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) to include: Finland, Australia, Belgium, Canada and Switzerland.

Deliveries will commence this year and continue through 2013.

JHMCS, our first combat proven helmet, remains the world’s leading helmet display for fixed-wing tactical aircraft. It is known and respected by fighter-attack pilots around the world because it enables them to maintain ‘eyes out’ while viewing critical information on the helmet visor. JHMCS gives pilots unparalleled situational awareness, providing them a significant advantage in both air-to-air and air-to-ground mission execution,” said Phil King, president of VSI.
