Abstract : This paper discusses a new wide-bandwidth Hybrid Video Amplifier Chip Set (HVACS) developed in conjunction with a Quick Disconnect Connector (QDC) with primary application to helmet-mounted displays (HMD). Its major objective is to provide improved control and modulation of the video signal at the cathode ray tube (CRT) while permitting an off-helmet location that places the final video amplification stage much further from he CRT than is the case for direct-view chassis mounted CRTs. The results of this work are being incorporated into a standard pilot vehicle interface for helmet displays and sights by the Air Force. It is also hoped that this work will lead to an off the shelf device for military and industrial applications of helmet displays hat utilize helmet mounted CRT image sources.
