The USAF is conducting flight tests of the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System II (JHMCS II) aboard Lockheed Martin F-16V fighter aircraft.

This follows the completion of JHMCS II safety qualification testing, including windblast, tower and sled tests.

JHMCS II is formal baseline HMD for the F-16V Block 70/72 aircraft. 

The flight tests are part of the USAF Military Flight Release (MFR) process for the F-16V launch customer Bahrain. MFR tests will confirm whether the aircraft and its subsystems have met specification performance, safety, reliability, and maintainability criteria. 

JHMCS II is manufactured and delivered via Collins Elbit Vision Systems (CEVS), which is a JV between Raytheon Technologies subsidiary Collins Aerospace and Elbit Systems of America.
