Abstract : The report describes the work performed during a 12-month program designed to extend the performance characteristics of a holographic moving map display concept to enhance its performance characteristics in a cockpit environment. Features were added to the basic display concept to allow use of the moving map concept as a horizontal situation display. Techniques were presented for adding dynamic symbology features to the display for preflight annotating of the displayed data, and for presenting IR, FLIR and LLTV information through the same viewing aperture as the map data. A new transport system was defined to access the stored data rapidly. (Author)
