Joint Strike Fighter Helmet Mounted Display System
The F-35 Gen II HMDS is a biocular off-the-visor display providing the pilot with a wide field-of-view video/symbology image to both eyes. It offers next-generation technology in a compact, versatile and extremely rugged display with low power consumption. The HMDS’ custom helmet shell, liner and suspension system offer users a light weight, optimal center-of-gravity (C.G.) and maximum comfort solution. By virtue of precise head tracking capability and low latency graphics processing, it provides pilots with a virtual Head-Up Display (HUD). As a result, the F-35 is the first tactical fighter jet in 50 years to fly without a HUD.
