Abstract : An optimized optical link helmet mounted display (OOLHMD) system designed to satisfy requirements for a large-field-of-view, large-exit-pupil, high-resolution, helmet-mounted visually-coupled display device is described. The history and development of the basic concept is traced, and principal design considerations and requirements constituting the basis of the selected OOLHMD configuration are identified. Advantages and disadvantages of several alternative designs are also considered, and a comprehensive discussion of the benefits to be realized through use and application of the OOLHMD concept in lieu of displays permanently mounted within an aircraft cockpit is given.
