F-16A/B/ADF HUD Camera

  This Color Video HUD Camera is an intelligent mix of Mil-Standard and commercial-off-the-shelf components and operates successfully on both the A/0A-10A and F-16A/B/ADF HUDs. The camera system provides the unique features and reliability of a full Mil-Standard camera without the high cost.

The camera assembly is mounted on top of the HUD directly behind the combining glass so that it records precisely what the pilot sees including the outside world and the HUD symbology. The camera converts the optical images into electrical video signals for output to an on-board video recorder or transmitter.

The camera electronics incorporate extensive filtering to provide exceptional, noise-free, image quality using aircraft power.  The A/0A-10A HUD camera has a proven track record with over 11 years of operation on the A/0A-10A aircraft in the USAF, the ANG and the AFRES.
