Elbit Systems of America to integrate JHMCS II on AC-130W

Elbit Systems of America, through its RCEVS joint venture with Rockwell Collins, recently entered into a NAVSEA Crane contract funded by USSOCOM to integrate the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) II onboard the AC-130W. This is the first JHMCS II integration effort in the US for military cargo aircraft. Current versions of JHMCS are flying on most US fighter aircraft.

This integration will occur over the course of the next two years. While the value of the contract is immaterial to Elbit Systems of America, the integration of the JHMCS II is pivotal to the warfighter, since adding JHMCS II technology is part of a much larger effort to add capabilities to the AC-130 platform.

Designed to improve situational awareness, the JHMCS II Helmet Mounted Display System is based on operationally-proven technology that incorporates color symbology in both day and night modes. The JHMCS II provides visor projected video in a well-balanced lightweight helmet and integrated system. Improving the center of gravity reduces pilot fatigue, especially on the long-duration missions common to the AC-130.

“The JHMCS II system features the most innovative head-tracking technologies available, giving pilots increased situational awareness no matter what direction he or she is looking,” stated Raanan Horowitz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Elbit Systems of America. “The intelligent vision in the cockpit, gives pilots immediate and accurate recognition of friendly, threat, and unknown targets. With this awareness, AC-130 pilots flying with the JHMCS II will have a decided advantage.”
