Abstract : Eight technical papers, each by a different author, cover several aspects of head-up display (HUD) technology, emphasizing the state-of-the-art and test and evaluation of HUD systems. Authors represent several specialists and laboratories. The papers, by number, cover: (1) An overview of HUD optical design (optics), (2) Measurement of HUD optical quality (optical engineering), (3) Optical interactions of aircraft windscreens producing diplopia (physiological optics), (4) Sun/moon capture evaluation (optics), (5) Contrast loss and target detection (engineering psychology), (6) Assessing HUD performance with contrast sensitivity measurements (biophysics/Psychology), (7) Physical interaction of the HUD (applications engineering), and (8) Future development trends for HUD displays (development engineering).
