The Boresight Reference Unit is an optical alignment device that is mounted on the upper right side of the F-15 and F-18 instrument panel. The BRU works in conjunction with the Joint Helmet-Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) and allows the Weapon Systems Officer (WSO) to align his or her aiming reticle, projected on the helmet visor, with the aircraft’s targeting sensors. This capability allows both crew members to track and lock on to targets simultaneously, particularly with high off-boresight weapons.
The Avionics Cooling Blower is a high-capacity, high velocity, coaxial fan designed to pull cool air into and through an avionics bay to prevent the electronics from over-heating. This unit is currently installed on the OH-58 helicopter.
The ATFLIR Electronics Tray is the “brains” of the Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared System installed in the F/A-18 Hornet. When activated through the cockpit panel, the system allows for imagery from the aircraft’s infrared sensor to be transmitted to a ground-based unit. This high-resolution, real-time communication allows for precision targeting and strike capabilities, as well as reduced collateral damage.
The Aircraft Oxygen Regulator controls the pressure and flow of oxygen in aerospace life support systems. The model shown allows oxygen flow to the passenger service units (PSU) and drop-down masks in the event of cabin pressure loss on corporate/business jets.
