Indian firm Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) and Israel's Elbit Systems signed a Technical Collaboration Agreement (TCA) for Licensed Manufacturing of Helmet Mounted Display System (HMDS)/ Helmet Pointing System (HPS) Version at the Aero India 2019 airshow, Bengaluru.
Under this agreement, BEL gets the license to manufacture and integrate the Helmet Mounted Display system (HPS Ver-02) for Indian Naval and other rotary wing platforms of the Armed Forces. The HMDS is having the latest features of Night Flying with Night Vision Goggles, Colour Day & Night Display, 3D symbology, Head Tracking, Sensors & Weapon Cuing, BEL said in a statement.
The HMDS/HPS provides the capability to display helicopter’s flight and platform information, mission data, target information as well as capabilities such as Low Visibility Landing and Take-Off, flight within Degraded Visibility Environment, optional Weapons Management and Synthetic Vision during day and night flying. The ‘Heads Up - Eyes Out’ concept minimises the need for ‘Heads Down’
in-cockpit instrumentation observation for critical information as altitude, velocity, engine performance, warning indications and allows the crew to concentrate on mission performance, thus increasing situational awareness and survivability in all naval missions, the company stated further.
