One of the many derivatives of F-16C/D Head Up Display design was that for the Republic of Singapore Airforce who procured 36 of the F-5S a single seat reconnaissance version of the F-5S and also 9 of the F-5T which was an upgraded version of the F-5F. The company provided a HUD under a programme called METIS. The PDU differed from the standard unit by having a dual Combiner and an active UFCP. The major elements were common with the RSAF F-16 C/D’s. The first flight was on the 12th September 2002 from Paya Lebar Air Base.
The PDU had a double Combiner but with the upper being about half the lower in length (there is no need for the forward lower section as the image transfers to the upper aft section to enhance the vertical field of view). The UFCP incorporates a multiline display but is otherwise similar to the standard.
The manufacturer is implied by a Thales inspection seal.
