  • 13-May-2010 08:57 EDT

Vision Systems International LLC (VSI) has received several new contracts with a total value of more than $80 million. Awarded contracts include delivery of the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) to The Boeing Co. for U.S. and foreign military sales, Fast Characterization Tools (FACT) for the U.S. Navy, and JHMCS for other international sales. Under these production contracts, VSI will provide JHMCS and FACT hardware, including spares, technical support, and ground support equipment, for the Full Rate Production—Lot 6 (FRP-6) acquisition. Deliveries under FRP-6 will commence this year and continue through 2011. The JHMCS 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 field-of-view for designation.
