What is a helmet-mounted display?
The world’s most advanced helmet-mounted display
The Striker II digital Helmet-Mounted Display (HMD) builds on the decades of combat-proven performance by the Striker HMD, used on Typhoon and Gripen aircraft. The only full color solution with integrated night vision available anywhere, Striker II gives pilots unparalleled situational awareness, next generation EBAPS™ night vision, optional 3D audio, and battle proven target tracking technology — all in an integrated, visor-projected digital HMD system.
The highly advanced Striker II supports the display of high resolution sensor systems such as a distributed aperture systems, which allows pilots see through the body of the aircraft — giving them a vital advantage when it comes to split-second decision making. Using optical sensors embedded in the aircraft, Striker II immediately calculates the pilot’s exact head position and angle. This means no matter where the pilot is looking, Striker II displays accurate targeting information and symbology, with near zero latency.
Feature & benefit details of the Striker II HMD
Integrated night vision – All the capability, all the time
Color symbology: A mission critical advantage
Significantly lighter than HMD/NVG solutions
3D audio and active noise reduction
Easy, platform-agnostic integration – today and tomorrow
Striker II has been specifically designed to allow for easy integration across a wide range of platforms. It's compatible with aircraft that have analog display drive electronics, via a low latency converter, and has a digital interface for aircraft with digital display drives. Its comprehensive list of features work together seamlessly to provide pilots with unmatched awareness. Most importantly, the information is displayed in an intuitive way, allowing for a natural response in what can be the most challenging and unnatural of environments.
BAE Systems can provide complete HMD System solution using the Striker II, or work with customers to integrate Striker II into existing aircraft architectures on an Open Architecture basis to give customers the freedom and ability to develop their own symbology/display formats, and provide optimized aircraft mounted hardware solutions.
