Paper Abstract

BAE Systems two-part Striker helmet product family is a mature fully integrated helmet mounted display in volume production and used on multiple fixed wing and rotary wing platforms worldwide. The Striker system on Typhoon and Gripen provides a high accuracy off bore sight weapon cueing capability to the fast jet users in eight nations. The advanced all digital rotary wing variant of the Striker HMD is a dedicated helicopter variant which has already been extensively flight tested in U.S., UK, and European platforms. This visor-projected HMD is a mature, advanced integrated display helmet that has been specifically designed for high capability military HMD applications but also has a wider dual use capability in specialist non-military applications. The underlying two-part integrated helmet concept is also a mature design already in wide spread operational use. The combination of these features has enabled the core Striker HMD design concept to be enhanced to meet the demand of both 5th Generation fixed wing platforms and enhanced capabilities for future military and civil rotary wing applications.
