VSI To Enhance Royal Danish Air Force's F-16 Night-Attack Capability

FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Vision Systems International (VSI), LLC, a world leader in advanced Helmet Mounted Displays (HMDs), has been awarded a contract from the Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF) to provide its Night Vision Cueing and Display-Aviator's Night Vision Imaging Systems (NVCD-ANVIS) technology, the night module for the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS).

"We are extremely proud of this award from the Royal Danish Air Force, which is a continuation of the 12-year-long strategic relationship and look forward to the successful implementation of this new operational capability," said VSI President Phil King.  The RDAF will use VSI's NVCD-ANVIS to enhance its F-16 night-attack capability, for both air-to-air and air-to-ground operations.  The RDAF is VSI's first international customer for the NVCD-ANVIS technology.

VSI's NVCD-ANVIS technology, which enables night-time target acquisition capabilities through the display of JHMCS targeting cues and aircraft performance parameters directly on the Night Vision Goggles image, allows the pilot to accurately cue onboard weapons and sensors against enemy aircraft and ground targets without the need to aggressively turn the aircraft or place the target in a Head-Up Display (HUD) field-of-view for designation. The use of the NVCD-ANVIS necessitates no changes to the JHMCS, or to the aircraft's hardware or software.

NVCD-ANVIS capabilities were successfully proven in four flight demonstration sessions, one of them in Denmark. "RDAF F-16 pilots demonstrated the efficient integration of NVGs with JHMCS during 300 hours of flight operations over Libya during their participation in Unified Protector 2011," said a RDAF spokesperson at the time, "The tactical information and situational awareness was outstanding."

"NVCD-ANVIS answers an urgent operational requirement for international JHMCS users.  Its ease of operation and straight-forward installation makes it a natural extension for current JHMCS users," said King.
