The crown jewel in the Lockheed Martin F-35 weapon system, the “Gen 3” F-35 Helmet Mounted Display System, has been delivered after more than a decade of development and will start being cut into the production line next year.
Produced by Rockwell Collins and Elbit Systems’ Vision Systems joint venture, the Gen 3 helmet has had a troubled past and is almost as controversial as the fifth-generation fighter aircraft itself, but will soon be ready for service with the first unit delivered this week.
Rockwell announced the helmet delivery in an August 12 statement, saying it will be introduced into the fleet as part of F-35 low-rate initial production Lot 7 in 2016.
It succeeds the less-capable Gen 2 helmet that the Marine Corps used to declare initial operational capability last month, and has been delivered as promised in 2013 when the Pentagon cancelled an alternative helmet programme with BAE Systems.
