FORT WORTH, Texas, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System II (JHMCS II), an upgraded and improved
version of the classic JHMCS and the world's first high definition, color,
smart-visor system that operates in both day and night mode, will be making
its debut at the Paris Air Show in Hall 3, Booth E111 from June 17-21.
"JHMCS II is more intelligent, more capable and more affordable," 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 for the flight crew."
The JHMCS product line has evolved to be considered the best, field-proven
technology available in providing the pilot with intelligent vision. For over
15 years, the JHMCS has been a combat-proven helmet-mounted display for
fixed-wing aircraft, including F/A-18, F-15, and the F-16.
The JHMCS II product family has been developed to meet the needs of the modern
military aircrew and provide a superior level of situational awareness. Flight
crews fly JHMCS around the world and during combat operations. "Pilots flying
with JHMCS II will have a decided advantage when they observe, orient, decide
and act," said Hodge.

About JHMCS II
JHMCS II is a low cost, low integration helmet mounted display (HMD) solution
designed for new aircraft installation and as an upgrade / ECP enhancement
solution for aircraft already equipped with JHMCS. Both of these solutions
provide visor projected color video & symbology in a well-balanced lightweight
HMD and provide market leading capabilities in both day and night
environments. There are two versions of the JHMCS II product line, Digital
JHMCS and JHMCS II: For existing aircraft equipped with JHMCS classic, Digital
JHMCS is an economical but significant upgrade. Using many of the existing
components, and requiring no software changes, Digital JHMCS has the "all new"
aspects of JHMCS II, and the benefits it brings, with the added benefit of
very easy retrofit. Digital JHMCS II is a simple 'plug and play' upgrade
solution for the over 6000 JHMCS solutions already delivered. JHMCS II
provides a new optical-inertial tracker and replaces the JHMCS subsystems with
a lightweight Aircraft Interface Unit (ACIU). JHMCS II works with any aircraft
and any aircraft architecture. Both Digital JHMCS and JHMCS II share common
design attributes that are new and improved over classic JHMCS.
