Important Features

Technical Features

Basic Helmet is composed of lightweight composite materials and individually manufactured inner liner specific to the user.

Video, navigation, weapon and platform symbologies and external video (i.e. IR camera, missile seeker) are projected on Pilot's visor. The symbology of the system can be designed according to the platform and user specifications.

Hybrid Head Tracking system, which uses both optical and inertial tracking methods, provides easy cockpit installation.
