The Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) is a product of RCEVS, a joint venture between Elbit Systems and Rockwell Collins. The JHMCS is a modular helmet display mounted on a light weight HGU 55/P helmet shell that can accommodate a day or night module. The day module provides a 20-degree field-of-view visor projected monocular display. JHMCS provides several options for the night module including Night Vision Cueing Display (NVCD) QuadEye™ (100-degree by 40-degree field of view) or NVCD Aviator Night Vision Imaging System (40-degree field of view), with symbology or video inserted into the night-vision scene. JHMCS incorporates a highly accurate magnetic tracking system, providing the pilot full situational awareness throughout the canopy field-of-regard. JHMCS is in full-rate production and is operational on the F-15, F-16 and F/A-18.
