Elbit Systems and Rockwell Collins co-product, next generation Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS), will be unveiled during the 30th Annual Air Force Association Air Warfare and Technology Exposition, February 19-21, 2014.

JHMCS II is the next generation Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS), featuring more intelligence and capabilities than its predecessor, the JHMCS II provides pilot intelligent vision, enhanced situational awareness across the entire battle space during day and night operations, and uses high definition, color symbology while keeping the pilot's head up and eyes out.

For over 15 years, the JHMCS has been a combat-proven, helmet-mounted display choice for fixed-wing aircraft, including the F/A-18, F-16, and F-15. The JHMCS II was developed to meet the needs of the modern military aircrew and provides a superior level of situational awareness. "Pilots flying with JHMCS II will have a decided advantage when they observe, orient, decide and act," said Mark Hodge, Vice President Business Development of Elbit Systems of America, LLC. "We worked alongside warfighters to create a superior system that improves information access."
