/PRNewswire/ -- Vision Systems International
(VSI), LLC, the leading developer of Helmet Mounted Display (HMD)
technologies for tactical aircraft, will showcase at the Farnborough Air Show
three of world's most advanced HMD systems, including the company's F-35
GEN II HMD, Targo™ HMD and its Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System
(JHMCS).
Visitors to Farnborough Show,
July 9-13
, will have an opportunity to learn about
all three HMD systems and other VSI technologies at
Booth B15, Hall 2
.
In
addition, VSI plans to offer selected guests and business partners an
opportunity to see and feel what fighter pilots experience when donning the
helmets, via a simulated demo of HMDS capabilities.
Earlier this year, VSI announced a
$32 million
contract for the delivery of its
JHMCS technology to Boeing Company for U.S. and Foreign Military Sales
(FMS). JHMCS was VSI's first combat-proven helmet and it remains the world's
leading helmet display for fixed-wing tactical aircraft.
Last fall, Lockheed Martin Aerospace awarded VSI two additional phases in the
development of the HMD system for the F-35, enabling VSI to enhance the F-35
HMDS currently in production for the 5th generation Lightning II Joint Strike
Fighter aircraft.
Targo™ is VSI's low-cost, low-integration solution for light attack, airlift and
trainer aircraft. The system is designed for any required level of integration,
from an autonomous training system to full-up integrated helmet display.
Each VSI technology is developed as a system. A critical part of the company's
success is its ability to integrate its technologies with specific aircraft systems.
VSI works closely with its partners during the integration phase and throughout
the system service life to provide full capabilities and optimum performance.
As the only combat-proven helmet mounted displays for fixed-wing aircraft, VSI
systems fly on the F/A-18, F-15, F-16 and the F-35. In addition, the company's
JHMCS technology has been selected by more than 20 international air forces.
