In 2001, BAE Systems was looking for technologies that could provide an improved boresight capability – offer easier use, lower procurement cost and most importantly an affordable through-life cost given that most weapon platforms go through significant equipment upgrades and therefore require changes to their boresight systems.
After extensive evaluation, the technology of Metronor was selected and an initial development contract was signed in fall 2004, resulting in 4 + 2 deliveries of fully qualified kits in the summer of 2006. Since then, Harmolign systems have been selected for a number of new fixed- and rotary wing aircraft programs, and the systems have been continuously developed to meet new challenges – adding positional data, operating in confined spaces like closed cockpits, handling high numbers of stations to be boresighted, working from distributed coordinate systems, developing non-MIL-STD solutions where environmental requirements are less important than affordability etc.
With a current track record of almost 50 systems for 7 different platforms and 20 air forces, Harmolign systems have proven accurate, reliable and affordable – and highly adaptable, just as intended.
