F-35 Pilot's Helmet..

THIS HELMET IS USED  WITH THE F-35 JOINT STRIKE FIGHTER.

Terminator-style helmets  allow fighter pilots to see through their planes.  Only the neck and shoulders  prove there is a human being in there somewhere.


This is how the next  generation of fighter pilots will look.  And with piercing green  eyes staring out from behind the visor, it's no surprise that the  helmet has been compared to Arnold Schwarzenegger's killer robot in  The Terminator.

Pilots flying the F-35 Joint  Strike Fighter will have an astonishing array of technology encasing  their heads - enabling them to see right through their own aircraft &nbs p;fuselage to the ground below.

A series of cameras on the  outside of the stealth warplane feed high-resolution images into the  helmet, including infra-red images at night, which are then projected  on to the inside of the pilot's visor.

Special sensors inside the  cockpit track the movement of the helmet, so that when the pilot turns  his head his view of the skies or ground outside changes  accordingly.

When he looks down, he sees  not his own feet on the cockpit floor but the ground below, slipping &nb sp;past at hundreds of miles per hour.

On-board computers also feed  in essential flight and combat data on to the display, as well as  superimposing target symbols to locate enemy and friendly aircraft or  ground targets, even if they are too far away to see with the naked  eye.

Cutting-edge: Cameras are  attached to the outside of F-35 Joint Strike Fighters to give pilots  all-round vision.

Prototypes were used in test flights by  U..S. pilots earlier this year and are now being assessed by  engineers.

The computerized symbology  will be displayed directly on the pilo t's visor, providing the pilot  with cues for flying, navigating, and fighting the  aircraft.

It even will superimpose  infra-red imagery on to the visor to allow the pilot to look through  the cockpit floor at night and see the world below - like something  out of  Terminator.
