Raytheon to Supply Projectors for BAE-Built F-22 Digital Head-Up Displays - top government contractors - best government contracting eventRaytheon has been chosen to deliver projectors for digital head-up displays that BAE Systems will install aboard the U.S. Air Force‘s F-22 Raptor aircraft.

The Digital Light Engine HUDs will replace traditional analog displays on the fighter aircraft and help pilots gain situational awareness, Raytheon said Tuesday.

Lockheed Martin awarded BAE a contract in January to modernize F-22 HUDs for the Air Force.

Reg Jonas, manager of optical design at Raytheon’s ELCAN Optical Technologies business, said the company’s projectors feature a modular design that would not require changes to existing HUD optics or aircraft mechanical interfaces.

Raytheon is scheduled to begin delivery of DLE projectors in early 2018.
