SAAB Gripen

SAAB Gripen

The SAAB JAS-39 Gripen uses an advanced helmet display and sight system based on electro-optical helmet tracking. To work properly, both the position and orientation of all the in-cockpit helmet tracking sensors must be known with high precision relative to the main aircraft coordinate system – measurements that must be completed with the canopy closed.

The Harmolign for Gripen HTS alignment system determines the pitch, yaw, roll as well as the positional X, Y and Z information for all sensors in a single, simple procedure that can easily be carried out by any aircraft technician in the field by following system on-screen instructions.

The fully MIL-STD system supports both single-seat and dual-seat aircraft, and is in operational use both by SAAB themselves and air forces operating the SAAB Gripen fighter.
