  • 12-Aug-2008 10:20 EDT

Vision Systems International (VSI) has been awarded an initial contract of more than $17 million from Boeing for the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) in 145 F-15E Strike Eagles. The contract includes dual-seat capable JHMCS hardware and pilot equipment including helmets and visors. Initial deliveries have already commenced and will continue through mid-2009. The JHMCS provides the pilot with "first look, first shot" high off-boresight weapons engagement capabilities. The system enables 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 the head-up display for designation.
