BAE Systems’ LiteHUD takes first flight
BAE Systems' LiteHUD head-up display has achieved a significant milestone with the completion of its first flight, the company announced on 12 September.
LiteHUD is expected to fly on at least two other aircraft this year.
An HUD is a see-through display that provides flight-critical information directly in a pilot’s line of sight, without obstructing views of the outside world. Since its inception, LiteHUD has been selected for trainer platforms, light combat aircraft and full-fledged fighters including the Hurkus trainer, Scorpion jet, AC-130J aircraft and Advanced Hawk demonstrator.
LiteHUD uses optical waveguide technology. The system is engineered to improve situational awareness in day and night conditions, improve flight safety and also reduce pilot fatigue. Its modular design with a built-in colour camera enables seamless integration with existing and future cockpits.
