Textron selects LiteHUD for Scorpion jet
The initial order will support the Scorpion’s robust flight test programme. The jet has been designed for multi-role operations including intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, close air support, armed reconnaissance, maritime and border patrol, and jet training missions.
LiteHUD has been designed using BAE Systems’ optical waveguide technology to be 60 percent smaller by volume and up to 50 percent lighter than conventional head-up displays. The system enhances situational awareness in day and night conditions, improving flight safety and reducing pilot fatigue. Its modular design includes a built-in colour camera.
Andy Humphries, director of advanced displays at BAE Systems, said: ‘This award marks the second new platform order for LiteHUD, further validating it as the future of head-up display technology.
‘With its revolutionary optics and high-resolution display, LiteHUD will provide Scorpion pilots with the ‘head-up, eyes-out’ capability they need, no matter the mission.’
