USAF acquires more JHMCS for its figther fleet

The USAF has awarded Boeing with a new contract to integrate the Joint Helmet-Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) into 145 F-15E aircraft .The total value of the contract is about $49.5 million.
The contract includes hardware and installation services on the aircraft, as well as initial pilot equipment, such as helmets and visors. Installation in the first F-15E is expected in October, with contract completion in December 2010.
It is expected that the JHMCS will be integrated on all the  F-15C, D and E fleet.
JHMCS enhances pilot situational awareness and provides head-up control of aircraft targeting systems and sensors. Using visual displays inside the helmet visor, the pilot is able to detect, acquire and engage surface and airborne targets.
Today the JHMCS is deployed in more than 2500 F-15, F-16 and F/A-18 aircrafts.
