Saab Aerosystems have worked with BAE Systems at Rochester to develop the ‘Cobra’ Helmet Mounted Display. This is a derivative of the Eurofighter HMD and is offered as an option on the export Gripen. The project started in 2003 and is now being delivered. This collection of helmet parts shows the inner helmet with the two part form-fit liners and the outer shell with the tracker LEDs. The liners are marked for JPATS which stands for Joint Primary Aircraft Training System which is a combined USN and USAF programme bringing the T-6 trainer into service. There are manikins used for the test programmes by Navair and Armstrong Labs and wind blast testing was carried out in 2005 at 525Knots.
