To the multi-role tactical aircraft pilot, split-second decision-making can be a matter of life or death. The F-35 Gen III Helmet Mounted Display System’s next generation interface provides pilots with intuitive access to vast quantities of flight, tactical, and sensor information for advanced situational awareness, precision and safety.
Integrated HUD, display and night visionThe head-up display (HUD), helmet-mounted display, and visor-projected night vision are fully integrated to provide pilots with unprecedented capability in the fighter cockpit. They can target their weapons and maintain advanced spatial orientation while continually monitoring critical flight information.
Bi-ocular display system with full day and night visionAdvanced bi-ocular, 30-by-40-degree-wide field-of-view has 100 percent overlap. For night missions, the HMDS projects directly onto the visor, eliminating the need for separate night-vision goggles
Visual targetingThe HMDS enables the pilot to target weapons by looking at and designating targets, and target verification when receiving steering cues from onboard sensors or via datalink.
High performance design with optimal center of gravityThe lightweight design has an optimal center of gravity and Active Noise Reduction (ANR). The custom helmet liner ensures precise fit and comfort for reduced pilot fatigue.
