Flight Dynamics (Oregon,USA), Sextant Avionique (France) both make
commercial aircraft Head Up Displays.

The Canadair RJ is certified to operate with HUD to Cat IIIa minima
(Flight Dynamics)

Dassault Falcon 2000 and Saab 2000 both have programs to certify HUD
installations for manual Cat III approaches (Flight Dynamics).
