L-3 Communications’ Advanced Helmet Mounted Display has recently been incorporated into the U.S. Army Flight School XXI, a promising sign for the emerging twin fields of "augmented reality" and “making people more like the Terminator”.

“Helmet mounted displays have proven their effectiveness in supporting the U.S. Army Aviation Warfighting Center’s conduct of large-scale, simulation-based aviation training exercises, which are conducted over geo-specific visual databases of areas in Iraq and Afghanistan to which units are preparing to deploy,” L-3 Link’s Vice President of Army Programs Mr. Genna stated. “The integration of L-3’s AHMDs into these exercises will further enhance the quality and training realism of these major training events.”
