DID has covered the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing Systems (JHMCS) before, from its revolutionary effect on air combat when used with 4th generation SRAAMs like the AIM-9X Sidewinder, to the program’s rocky but ultimately successful history. JHMCS helmets are now a common request from countries who are upgrading their US-made fighters. Vision Systems International, LLC recently announced the receipt of several new contracts with a total value of more than $100 million: a request from Boeing for more than 500 additional JHMCS systems under Full Rate Production Lot 2 (FRP-2), and direct contracts from the United States Navy and Air Force for spares and test equipments in support of the JHMCS program. These procurements fills U.S. government domestic requirements for the USAF F-15 and F-16, ANG F-15, USN F/A-18 Single seat and Dual Seat platforms as well as foreign military sales production and spares commitments.
