VSI To Showcase World's Most Advanced Helmet Mounted Display Technologies At 2012 Farnborough Air Show

Stocks in this article: COL ESLT

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Vision Systems International (VSI), LLC, the leading developer of Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) technologies for tactical aircraft, will showcase at the Farnborough Air Show three of world's most advanced HMD systems, including the company's F-35 GEN II HMD, Targo™ HMD and its Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS). 

Visitors to Farnborough Show, July 9-13, will have an opportunity to learn about all three HMD systems and other VSI technologies at Booth B15, Hall 2.   In addition, VSI plans to offer selected guests and business partners an opportunity to see and feel what fighter pilots experience when donning the helmets, via a simulated demo of HMDS capabilities. 

Earlier this year, VSI announced a $32 million contract for the delivery of its JHMCS technology to Boeing Company for U.S. and Foreign Military Sales (FMS).  JHMCS was VSI's first combat-proven helmet and it remains the world's leading helmet display for fixed-wing tactical aircraft. 

Last fall, Lockheed Martin Aerospace awarded VSI two additional phases in the development of the HMD system for the F-35, enabling VSI to enhance the F-35 HMDS currently in production for the 5th generation Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.

Targo™ is VSI's low-cost, low-integration solution for light attack, airlift and trainer aircraft.  The system is designed for any required level of integration, from an autonomous training system to full-up integrated helmet display.

Each VSI technology is developed as a system.  A critical part of the company's success is its ability to integrate its technologies with specific aircraft systems. VSI works closely with its partners during the integration phase and throughout the system service life to provide full capabilities and optimum performance.

As the only combat-proven helmet mounted displays for fixed-wing aircraft, VSI systems fly on the F/A-18, F-15, F-16 and the F-35.  In addition, the company's JHMCS technology has been selected by more than 20 international air forces.
