WASHINGTON, 10 Oct. 2007. BAE Systems has developed new helmet-mounted display technology that addresses a critical warfighter need for enhanced situational awareness. The company unveiled its Q-Sight family of helmet displays and tracking products at the Association of the U.S. Army's Annual Symposium and Exhibition in Washington.

The system features a lightweight, ergonomic design and increased visibility, flexibility, and reliability. Weighing less than 4 ounces, the miniature display clips to any helmet.

Q-Sight technology features brighter displays, a larger "exit pupil" for pilot viewing, and seamless transitions between day and night to increase pilot situational awareness and mission capability.

The increased visibility and lightweight design minimize eye and neck strain, common problems for pilots managing the demands of longer missions and increasingly complex rules of engagement.
