    ST LOUIS: Boeingís Defence, Space and Security subdivision in St Louis has upgraded its Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) as part of a $31.7 million full-rate production contract, the Daily Mail reports.

    According to sources, the upgrade is a response to calls from air force aviation experts for helmet-mounted targeting systems for air forces in Pakistan, Belgium, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, and Finland, as well as from the US Navy.

    Boeing initially began production of its Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System range in 2000, and the system has been in production since 2005.

    The JHMCS is deployed on more than 2,500 F-15, F-16 and F/A-18 combat jets worldwide, the Boeing company said Friday.

    The system helps Air Force jetfighter pilots fire the AIM-9X Sidewinder heat-seeking air-to-air missile as part of the High-Off-Bore Sight system, enabling a pilot to aim onboard weaponry at enemy aircraft by pointing their head at a targets.

    JHMCS was built with Israel's Elbit as the primary design partner. The JHMCS is based on Israel's Dash 3. The ones going on LCA is the Israeli Dash 4 and the ones on MKI will be the French Topsight I.

    Awesome news. More than enough to justify upping our oil imports from Iran to 30% of total consumption at a nicely discounted rate.

    Obama is such an idiot. Defining partnership of the 21st century, my ass.

    Russians innovated HMDs before the West, made them realized its effectiveness during a German MiG-29 vs F-16s exercises!!
