Collins Elbit Vision Systems delivers 3,000th F-35 Gen III Helmet Mounted Display System to the Joint Strike Fighter

Collins Elbit Vision Systems (CEVS) – a joint venture between Collins Aerospace, and Elbit Systems of America (Elbit America) – announced today that it has delivered the 3,000th F-35 Gen III Helmet Mounted Display Systems (HMDS) to the Joint Strike Fighter. Collins Aerospace is an RTX (NYSE: RTX) business.

The F-35 Gen III HMDS is the world’s most advanced helmet-mounted display system. Its next-generation user interface serves as a pilot’s primary display system, providing them with intuitive access to vital flight, tactical and sensor information day or night.

“CEVS has developed and delivered next-generation solutions that have kept pilots safe and battle ready for nearly 30 years,” said Collins Aerospace’s Daniel Karl, co-general manager of CEVS. “The HMDS offers pilots in combat zones unmatched situational awareness, giving them the vital information they need to make decisions faster. Our team in Wilsonville, Oregon, is proud to have helped lead the development and manufacturing of this technology for our warfighters, which will help them win the future fight.”

With the 3,000th delivery, CEVS has provided over 20,000 systems to warfighters and have logged more than 1 million flight hours on 40 different fighter aircraft platforms.

This milestone comes five months after CEVS unveiled Zero-G HMDS+ for 6th generation fighter aircraft.

“Zero-G – the newest generation of our HMDS – is the lightest, most capable and safest helmet mounted display system ever developed,” said Elbit America’s Jeff Hoberg, co-general manager of CEVS. “It was designed for next-generation fighter aircraft platforms and can also support 4th and 5th generation aircraft.”
