Republic of Korea F-16 Aircraft to get helmet-mounted cueing systems



Elbit Systems of America, LLC announced that its joint venture with Rockwell Collins, Rockwell Collins ESA Vision Systems, LLC (RCEVS) will incorporate the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System II (JHMCS II) helmet-mounted display into Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) F-16 aircraft, the company said.

The ROKAF version of the JHMCS II helmet provides pilots with enhanced situational awareness during day and night missions with immediate and accurate visor-projected display of friendly, threat, and unknown targets.

The JHMCS II Night Vision Goggle (NVG) and Digital Eyepiece (DEP) solution allows pilots to easily convert from day to night operations by using one hand while airborne and without removing the helmet. With the JHMCS II NVG/DEP night solution, pilots are able to fly with HMD symbology during both day and night missions.

Like its predecessor, the combat-proven JHMCS, the JHMCS II provides pilots and aircrew the capability to direct sensors and aim weapons. The JHMCS II system also includes an inherent future growth path to enhanced capabilities including full-color symbology generated by a digital image source, full color video, and pilot health monitoring.

The JHMCS is used in the F-15, F-16, and F/A-18 aircraft. Elbit Systems of America and Rockwell Collins, through RCEVS, also supply the F-35 Helmet Mounted Display System.
