Abstract : Integration of dual helmet-mounted displays, a helmet-attitude tracking device, a six-degree of freedom fighter aircraft digital simulation and dynamic stereo-pair computer graphics line drawings permitted overlaying 3-D (stereo) information on a pilot's view of the world. Display content for weapon delivery and 4-D navigation was investigated. A second display medium using a forward projection, TV, and PLZT goggles was incorporated to aid in the training process. This report documents what was learned in developing and evaluating the displays. (Author)
