Eye Targeting With Mounted Displays

The Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS), jointly developed by the Israelis and Americans, tracks the pilot's eyes while projecting a display on his helmet's visor. This allows the computer controlled vision system to “know” exactly what/where the pilot is looking at all times and enable him to lock on enemy targets by visual contact alone. The system is being sold as an option for the American "teen series" fighters ( F-15, F-16, etc.) and a more advanced version is being developed for the F-22 and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
