A helmet-mounted display (HMD) is a device used in aircraft to project information to the pilot's scope is similar to that of head-up displays (HUD) on an aircrew's visor or reticle.

An HMD provides the pilot with situation awareness, an enhanced image of the scene, and in military applications cue weapons systems, to the direction their head is pointing.

As research into and development of hard protective shelled helmets gained momentum in the west, beginning in the mid-to-late 40s as the fast new jets came into use, resulting in the first US hard protective helmet designs (such as the USAF P-1 and the US Navy H-1), and as the Soviet Union developed its own hard shell protective helmets [Note.

SES – Providing all your Aircrew equipment needs from helmets to clothing & accessories. In response to growing customer demands and building on an established reputation of servicing escape systems and survival equipment, SES has extended their product portfolio to include an effective way of purchasing and servicing aircrew helmets and equipment assemblies.

Helmet-Mounted Display Evol ution Since the s, the trend in Army aviation has been to rely increasingly on helmet-mounted display (HMD) devices or systems to provide the aircrew with pilotage imagery, flight information, and fire control imagery and sym bology.

The first such system was the AN/PVS-5 series night vision gogg le (NVG), circa. The Pilot-X comes standard with the communication package that includes a two plug general aviation panel cord with an emergency disconnect at the helmet via a Nexus U A/U plug. The microphone, which can be mounted on either the right or left side, is an electret flex boom with foam wind muff.

The helmet is equipped with external boom microphone CXA comunicatio cable and AMC/A amplifier. (Windrow & Greene Ltd.) HGU(V)3/P utilized on T Mentor. This helmet is equipped with PRK liner assembly, and Headset boom microphone is attached, no amplifier is used and the cable is the CXA/A instead of the CX/A.

IMH (Integrated Mission Helmet) "two-part" Engineers from NAVAIR's Crew System Research and Engineering Competency Program have developed a new helmet concept that they expect will enhance the stability and reliability of helmet mounted devices, ultimately improving the accuracy of information available to the aircrew.

A Flight helmet, sometimes nicknamed a "bone dome", is a special type of protective helmet primarily worn by military aircrew. It typically includes padding to reduce head injury, a visor for eye/face protection from the sun and windblast in case of an ejection, an oxygen mask for protection against hypoxia in high altitude flight, integrated.

A flight helmet, sometimes referred to as a "bone dome" or "foam dome", is a special type of helmet primarily worn by military aircrew. A flight helmet can provide: Impact protection to reduce the risk of head injury (e.g.

in the event of a parachute landing) and protection from wind blast (e.g. in the event of ejection).; A visor to shield the eyes from sunlight, flash and laser beams.

New generation pilot helmets with mounted devices enhance the capabilities of pilots substantially. However, the additional equipment increases the helmet weight and shifts its center of mass forward.

The protective capability of the SPH-4 could have been a lot better. In the past, helmets were developed to function as a vehicle to carry the communication devices and provide protection against sun, sound and debris.

In. It is a great book, albeit one is disturbed by the great amount of boozing and whoring (no doubt truthfully) the author describes.

But the author, now a distinguished author and professor of literature--unless he has retired by now--tells a poignant and realistic story of how he trained to be a pilot and was in commissioned as a Marine.

If asked to make a personal list of a few of the most sought after and scarce jet age US aircrew helmets today, I would have to include all the early US Navy helmets (H-1 through H-5), all the early USAF helmets (from original P-1 through P-3), the early USAF Pressure helmets (including the K-1, MA-2, HGK, etc.), clearly the 'clam-shells.
