Helmet-mounted display system

Progress has been made in fixing night-vision, latency and jitter problems experienced by pilots using the F-35 Joint Stike Fighter’s helmet-mounted display system (HMDS). But despite the prospect of a solution to this issue, aircraft maker Lockheed Martin also charted a possible alternative course using an HMDS with night-vision goggles (NVGs).

Lexavia LFS 6000 EVS

A new entrant to the infrared enhanced-vision system (EVS) market, Lexavia, is about to receive FAA certification of its first camera/display installation, on a Eurocopter AS355 TwinStar law-enforcement helicopter. Chuck Crompton, business development director for the Pensacola, Fla.-based integrated systems house, said the STC will soon be followed by several others.

Rockwell Collins's Pro LineFusion PFD

The overwhelming desire when looking at the Pro Line Fusion system in the Rockwell Collins Challenger 601 on which we took a test flight is to keep looking down at the colorful and huge displays, fixed in landscape orientation and showing a detailed view of the outside world as represented by synthetic vision.

Honeywell EVE/EVS

Today avionics manufacturers offer products that meet the FAR 91.175 requirement, which allows pilots to descend below 200 feet during an approach, using a system that displays infrared enhanced vision system (EVS) images on the head-

Following developmental issues with the Joint Strike Fighter’s helmet display that were raised earlier this year, the F-35 Joint Program Office is faced with making a decision this summer on whether to procure an interim helmet/display to use with standard night-vision goggles.

For more than five years, Rockwell Collins engineers have been working on a tough challenge: how to make a compact head-up display (HUD) system, one that could fit into much smaller aircraft than the big jets that currently carry HUDs.

The Dassault Falcon 7X is among the first business jets to benefit from the better quality of LCD imaging for the enhanced-vision system (EVS) that the manufacturer is now offering as an option on its head-up display (HUD). The system allows crews flying the large-cabin trijet to see more clearly at night and in foggy conditions.

Rockwell Collins is developing the HGS-3500 head-up guidance system, a smaller and lighter head-up display (HUD) for turboprop singles to midsize jets. The HGS-3500, for use in aircraft equipped with the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite, fits into one 12-pound unit that mounts in front of the pilot. It consists of an LED-lighted active-matrix LCD that feeds the image into the top of the HUD glass.

Rockwell Collins announced the new smaller and lighter compact HGS-3500 head-up guidance system today at the FSF/NBAA Corporate Aviation Safety Seminar in San Diego. At roughly one-fifth the installed cost of a typical long-range jet’s head-up display (HUD), the HGS-3500 promises to bring the safety benefits of HUD technology to the segment spanning single-engine turboprops to midsize jets.
