Paper Abstract

Achieving large-scale production of helmet mounted systems in airborne platforms challenges the resources of both customers and developers. Commonality of technology and subsystems, and between different HMD products for multiple platforms, reduces development costs and improves lifecycle costs, making HMD systems affordable. Achieving such commonality, under the constraints of varying operational needs and diverse operating environments, is a multidisciplinary challenge. Elbit Systems Ltd., Helmet Mounted System Division, has fielded in the last two decades thousands of HMD systems for both fighters and helicopters. Commonality has always played a key role in the development of new HMD systems. This paper shares experience and discusses approaches of implementing commonality into HMD system design.
