May 23, 2007 We’ve written before about the very special Boeing-developed, US$240,000 Joint Helmet-Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) and the trials it was undergoing. Now Boeing is retrofitting F/A-18F Super Hornets with an aft cockpit JHMCS and the first examples are arriving in the hands of front line squadrons. The JHMCS gives flight crew members the ability to rapidly acquire and designate a target simply by looking at it. The two-seat version of the system places a JHMCS helmet on both crew members, giving each the capability to aim weapons and sensors as well as a visual indication of where each crew member is looking.
