:doh: I attempted to understand the gobbledegook at URL - otherwise I think you can rest assured any news will go here.

Bunch o'stuff some already in this thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/eMaginCorp/com ... _aviation/

I looked for the 'aircraft carrier' fillum clip wot is somewhere (repeated) in this forum but could not find it hastily so here it may be again. As 'SWP' points out it is all CGI and may not be 100% accurate but I'll take anyfing I can get for now: see the bogies bogies bogies in the screenshot? FOUND the fillumclip: viewtopic.php?f=57&t=15767&p=368348&hilit=published#p368348 & Later: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=53585

Back in the HOOhaa Era - back before THE beginning - geez even in whenever this article was not exceprted much here:

viewtopic.php?f=55&t=5525&p=166744&hilit=Carroll#p166744 [original article offline for awhile]

SO HERE GOES in an attempt to STOP the haaHOO about some kind of eye-tracking tech that some want to ascribe to the HMDS of the F-35 - HOKAY? :mrgreen:
Lightning Sight
01 Aug 2009 Sydney Carroll

"...The helmet-mounted display system, or HMDS, displays head-steerable symbology, meaning the pilot's line of sight dictates the content that appears on the visor. As soon as, or even before, a pilot sees another aircraft in the distance, the system projects a marker on the visor to locate, identify, and track the aircraft. If the designated aircraft is determined to be hostile, the pilot can use the targeting info to cue weapons—without looking down at the cockpit displays and while pulling g's.

"No matter where pilots look, they have all the flight information right in front of their eyes," says Dave Perkins, lead engineer of HMDS integration. "The helmet displays airspeed, altitude, rate of climb, and the aiming information for all the weapons. The helmet even displays all the information needed should something go wrong. For example, it provides an alert and directs the pilot's attention if there's something nasty coming from the nose of the airplane while the pilot is looking somewhere else."

These HMD capabilities apply to F-35 air-to-ground missions as well. Pilots can mark new target locations by simply looking, pointing, and clicking a designator on the sidestick as they fly by. Then the aircraft's datalink system allows pilots to send the marked precise target coordinates quickly and easily to bombers and other combat aircraft in the same mission....

...The Gen II helmet is made of carbon fiber and Kevlar. It was carefully designed to distribute weight without altering the pilot's center of balance. If the majority of the helmet's weight is too far forward, high g's may force the pilot's head in the direction of the turn. To keep head movement under the pilot's control, designers brought the optics to the top of the forehead of the Gen II helmet....

Will we eventually see any custom artwork on the helmet?

I think if you look back through the thread you will see info about USMC/USN helmets being WHITE (for visibility sake at sea) with test boyos having badges on them I think - whatever. OR do you mean something out of the past? FANCY STUFF?

One could gargle WHITE in this thread alone to see a lot of info: viewtopic.php?f=62&t=16223&p=275780&hilit=white#p275780 LEADS to: viewtopic.php?f=62&t=16223&p=208912&hilit=colour#p208912

Our USMC / USN flight equipment personnel put white reflective tape on them to help SAR assets in case you jump out over water. It is almost always one of the top things the SAR swimmers remark on about finding aviators in the water post ejection. We'll also put a bit of squadron art work on the back. It's a big ocean out there, everything helps...

A similar graphic may be in this thread, anyway another HMDS simulated view from the Air & Space Magazine story before.

viewtopic.php?f=62&t=16223&p=375222&hilit=Space#p375222 31 Aug 2017 page 54 this thread.
“The F-35 helmet-display layout and symbols are similar to those of F-22 and F-16 head-up displays. On this simulated pilot’s view, images of the terrain are overlaid with data, such as the airspeed —625 knots— displayed in a rectangle on the left, and groundspeed just below: “GS 786.” In the center an attitude indicator shows the degree of the F-35’s pitch and roll relative to the horizon. At top center the display indicates a focus between compass heading 279 and 290 degrees. A rectangle on the right reads “14,000” feet of altitude. Diamonds are possible targets; circles, designated ones. (Rockwell Collins)” https://public-media.smithsonianmag.com ... y_live.jpg
