5 generation fighter pilots will be equipped with a new helmet



Development of a new helmet for pilots of a promising front-line aviation complex aviation (PAK FA), also known as a 5th generation fighter, operates the Tomilsk Research and Production Enterprise (NPP) Zvezda, a traditional Russian developer of protective equipment for military pilots. This was announced to ARMS-TASS by the chief designer of the Su-35 fighter Igor Demin, reports ARMS-TASS.

He noted the importance of integrating all the works in the direction of creating a new helmet. "You can not separate the development of various systems, including a system for displaying information, and work to create a helmet directly," - said Demin.

The chief designer noted that France and the United States have been developing pilot helmets in a similar way over a long period of time, whereas in Russia, on the contrary, these two phases of work are implemented separately.

According to Demin, Zvezda Scientific and Production Enterprise should integrate all the developments in "embedded technologies" obtained by Soviet and Russian firms over the course of 15 years.
According to foreign media reports, a flight helmet is currently being developed in the USA, which will not only provide pilot situational awareness and present relevant flight information in a convenient form, but will also analyze the pilot's physiological state.

    Good news!
    I understand that in the 6 generation, the entire field of action of the pilot will be in 3D and the helmet will take half of the tasks on itself, and maybe more. Although in this case there are many subtleties.
    The plane of course of outstanding beauty turned out. I would like to see what he is still capable of, it’s a pity of course that not everyone is showing us yet.

      It seems that these helmets are going to be introduced not only in the fifth generation, but also on 4 ++, and on Su-35 in particular. Somewhere not so long ago they wrote about this ...

      They do not show everything, but there are already impressive moments of maneuverability, especially with the AL-41F1 installation (117 product). Especially the moment on 2: 40 in the attached clip.
      But that is not all. wink
      According to Victor Chepkin, General Designer of NPO Saturn OJSC, there are two 5 engines of the first generation. The second under the symbol "type 30" has already been tested on the fighter "T-50". In the future, he can get the index "AL- ...". According to his parameters, he by 15-25 percent superior to "117"

        Yes!!! it is clear that the "bird" really likes to fly! she, like a maturing youngster, begins to realize her power, and is downright bursting into the sky! bow to everyone involved in the creation of this perfection! and ... we are waiting for the troops in large quantities, and the pilots are tired of waiting! good

      Yes, there are subtleties, of course.
      I remembered a story from the 90s, it happened in Amenrika, in the desert of Nevada. When two police officers, standing on a deserted road and looking at military planes flying overhead (there is a military airfield nearby), decided to find out at what speed "these things" are flying and pointed their radar at them. Result: two corpses and a burnt car. The aircraft's on-board computer picked up the tracking and gave the command to suppress the ground "firing point".

        Well, it's still a bike. Moreover, a mimicry from a more moderate story that a military plane flying by, discovered radiation and burned with the help of electronic warfare, a police radar. In turn, that bike came from a more or less real note that the British "Harrier" flew over the highway at a reduced speed and was spotted by the police radar, which was indicated by the radiation warning system. And the police, allegedly, could not understand that they had spotted this at a speed of 500 km / h.

    Not a bit of a thing but interesting: in the photo of the helmet f22 it is invisible that the front part from which any h.r.e sticks out! And in the case of emergency situations with electronics, can I fly without a helmet?

        Maybe I’m confusing something, but I had in mind a helmet similar to the head of an insect! And here it’s actually an ordinary helmet! Or did the Yusovites show a new chip, as usual, tell what it was all about, and then they threw it away from sin?

      They are absolutely right. At that time, they did not have serial models of such a helmet-mounted system. At one of the air shows in La Bourget, where our MIG-29 first hit, Americans salivated with envy: they understood that the presence of such a system gives an undeniable advantage expressed in precious time. A certain amount of manipulation was replaced by a simple turn of the head.

    I think Comrade Demin just found an excuse about disrupting the development deadlines. Half a year ago I read somewhere that the development of a new helmet for the T-50 is almost complete.
    Well, I could be wrong, as it’s not special on these issues.

      what are the deadlines ... is it- PAK FA, do you realize the huge volume of tasks? it's from scratch! it's all the best! and when it comes to quality, the perfect product, the timing can and should be adjusted! there should not be a mistake! OUR pilots must get an absolute fighter at this stage of time! times are: make a mistake, lose. let a little later, but better, the technology war is not comic. hi

    With its help, the pilot is able to see binocularly in a much wider area than standard human eyes. The helmet has an automatic night vision system and itself (depending on the situation) switches the modes.

    The helmet also serves as a command center: all airborne weapons are tied to the movements of the pilot's head and eyes. To hit targets in such a helmet is no more difficult than in a computer game.

        The first sighting devices mounted on helmets were developed in South Africa in the 1970s. Soviet specialists immediately noted this development when they lost several fighter jets in Angola shot down by South African pilots using these helmets. The USSR began to develop and five years later had its own helmet with an eye. It turned out to be very effective and scared the NATO Air Force when the Soviet helmet was demonstrated by German pilots from the former East Germany (before the unification of Germany in 1991) against experienced American F-16 pilots. The Israeli Air Force was the first in the West to create one of these helmets and is still the leader in this area.

      I can, as a developer, reliably say that even without additional functions, the helmet-mounted device turns out to be rather weighty and requires serious work down to such trifles (which are not at all trifles), such as the center of gravity.
