Q-Sight ordered for RN Lynxes

12 remote sighting systems with Q-Sight displays are to be bought to equip Royal Navy Lynx helicopters (Lynx HAS 8 to be exact). Q-Sight displays imagery from a machine gun's thermal sight on an overlay screen on a weapon operator's helmet.

The displays can work with night vison goggles and the operator can quickly switch between the two. Q-Sight uses holographic waveguides apparently.
