Rockwell Collins has been selected by General Dynamics C4 Systems to provide approximately 1,500 Helmet Mounted Displays (HMD) for the U.S. Army's Land Warrior integrated fighting system.

The contract calls for Rockwell Collins to provide its ProView(tm) SO35-A system for the program.

The Rockwell Collins ProView SO35-A system features full-color Super Video Graphics Array resolution with a 35-degree diagonal field of view. The S035-A system incorporates Rockwell Collins' proprietary electro-optical technology in an extremely low power and compact package.

The Land Warrior system has become a critical tool enabling leaders to more effectively and efficiently communicate down to the team level and includes a GPS sensor, radio, HMD and a portable computer connecting team leaders to the Army's network and databases.

"We're proud to be able to provide our HMD technology to this important system for the soldier," said Bruce King, vice president and general manager of Surface Solutions for Rockwell Collins.

"Our ability to produce a robust, high-quality, near-eye display for the soldier has helped increase the effectiveness of not only the system, but ultimately of our soldiers."

Washington (UPI) Jan 20, 2009
The American Lockheed Martin F-35 stealth Lightning Joint Strike Fighter is designed to destroy Russia's S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems, its developers say. The F-35's capability is particularly relevant in this time of increased concern over Russia's alleged sale of S-300s to Iran, a nation that has repeatedly threatened to "wipe Israel off the map."
