Eurofighter flies with Carl Zeiss Helmet Tracking System

Deliveries of the new Helmet Mounted Systems for the Eurofighter have now begun. Carl Zeiss Optronics supplies the helmet tracking system for these planes.

Two cameras behind the pilot are aimed at the infrared diodes in the helmet. The system recognizes the pilot’s line of sight through the movement of his head. A key feature is the promptness of the tracking function that continuously locks onto targets. It helps the pilot track, aim and fire external weapons systems.

The quick release mechanism separates the cables from the helmet at lightning speed, ensuring that functions such as the ejector seat remain unimpaired in the event of an emergency. Carl Zeiss Optronics has developed a helmet attachment for other aircraft types, allowing extensive installation of the tracking capabilities.
