AVCI Helmet Integrated Cueing System (HICS) is a visor-projected system. It is designed for helicopter platforms to improve the pilot's situational awareness and increase the capabilities of the pilot and aerial vehicle with its night vision, video, symbology, accurate head tracking.
Night vision, IR video, navigation and weapon symbology
Generation of head tracking information for accurate line of sight cueing and targeting
Personalized inner liner for pilot
Protection of Pilot's head and face against impact and sharp objects
Headgear Unit (assembly of Basic Helmet, Display Module, Head Tracking Module, Connection and Battery Module)
Electronics Unit (Symbology generation, video processing and head tracking algorithms)
Cockpit Camera Modules (for head tracking)
Control Panel (user interface on the platform for adjustments and selections)
Basic Helmet is composed of lightweight composite materials and individually manufactured inner liner specific to the user.
Video, navigation, weapon and platform symbologies and external video (i.e. IR camera, missile seeker) are projected on Pilot's visor. The symbology of the system can be designed according to the platform and user specifications.
Hybrid Head Tracking system, which uses both optical and inertial tracking methods, provides easy cockpit installation.
