L-3 Helmet Displays on U.S. Army Trainers

By Tish Drake | July 16, 2007

L-3 Link Simulation and Training division is integrating its Advanced Helmet Mounted Display (AHMD) into the U.S. Army Flight School's Reconfigurable Collective Training Devices (RCTDs). Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. L-3, based in New York City, said the upgrade replaces the existing helmet mounted displays that have been used on Army training devices since 2005. The technology provides pilots with 360-degree field-of-view imagery and systems symbology. The training program is jointly housed at the Aviation Warfighter Simulation Center, situated at the U.S. Army Aviation Warfighting Center at Fort Rucker, Ala. To date, L-3 has delivered 11 RCTDs, which can be reconfigured to support simulated training in the UH-60A/L, CH-47D, OH-58D, AH-64A and AH-64D helicopters. In all, L-3 is providing the training program with 37 simulators and training devices. For related news
