Worn by Apache helicopter crews, the Gentex HGU-56/P Apache Block III Integrated Rotary Wing Helmet System is an integrated helmet, display, and sight system with improved safety features and comfort that provides situational awareness and targeting information. The helmet system is a key component of the next generation Apache helicopter, the AH-64E, and is based on the highly successful Gentex HGU-56/P Rotary Wing Helmet System, which was modified for compatibility with an Elbit Systems’ Integrated Helmet and Display Sight System (IHADSS).

Features

  • Includes an adapter block for the display system molded to the right eardome of the helmet shell and visor-housing assembly that is designed to accommodate the IHADSS optical combiner
  • Replaces the legacy IHADSS helmet system to maximize cost-effectiveness and provide spare parts common to the fielded HGU-56/P Helmet Systems
  • Provides same impact protection levels as the standard U.S. Army HGU-56/P Helmet System, reducing the probability of concussive injury
  • Can be configured to include a laser protective visor to protect aircrew from on-board laser designation systems
