First Operational Deployment

Helios Operator Rack, Unit 1 completed flight testing in July and is currently the first unit deployed in support of a US DoD multi-mission aircraft. The configuration is pictured below, and houses a Viewpoint 21.5" quad mode monitor along with a smaller auxiliary monitor for continuous view of multiple feeds.

The unit accommodates a full-size keyboard and mouse in the folding keyboard tray. For easy access, the comms package is mounted to a sandwich-panel shelf on top of the rack (behind the console).
