A completely digital, raster video capable Head-Up Display (HUD), the CMC Electronics’ CMA-7150 Digital SparrowHawk™ provides a 26° total field of view and is designed to fit in a cockpit with a Large Area Display (LAD). It also offers up to twice the accuracy, making it the most accurate HUD available on the market. The CMA-7150 Digital SparrowHawk HUD features a reliable, solid state display and includes extensive built-in testing for simplified maintainability, internal data logging and continuous in-flight testing to track system conditions during flight.

The CMA-7150 can also be fitted with an optional HUD camera, video recording system and an Up Front Control Panel, which allows the pilot to select the system mode and manually enter numerical data into the mission system.

The Digital SparrowHawk offers numerous maintenance saving features such as electronic boresighting support (for original equipment installation); automatic boresighting (removal and replacements do not require re-boresighting of the HUD); O-Level interchangeable combiners (without requiring re-boresighting or re-calibration of the HUD); and O-Level interchangeable HUD Camera (no camera re-boresighting required upon removal and replacement).

When combined with CMC’s Operational Flight Programs, the CMA-7150 can provide a complete weapons delivery system providing a powerful, cost-effective solution for aircraft that perform a broad range of missions. Configurable symbology offers fleet commonality in “look and feel” and ensures minimal impact on pilot transition across aircraft types. The Digital SparrowHawk’s high performance and low cost make it the best value solution for new military aircraft or for upgrades to existing aircraft.
