StratPost managed a closer look at the BAE Systems-built Eurofighter Typhoon Helmet, dubbed the Star Wars Helmet by the company, and saw how it works. It is also on offer to the Indian Air Force (IAF) as part of the fighter aircraft proposal for the 126 Medium Multi Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) tender. This is the first time that this helmet had been brought to India.
The helmet has some 35 to 40 LED sensors mounted on the outer surface of the helmet, as shown above, which interact with other sensors placed around the cockpit.
The pilot moves his helmet around to zero in on the target.
