Abstract : Night vision goggles (NVG) greatly enhance the aviator's war fighting capability during hours of darkness. The addition of aircraft flight symbology directly onto the NVG would allow the aviator to view vital information without the need to look down at the aircraft console. One method of adding the display to the NVG is through the use of a fiber optic cable (FOC). During ejection or emergency ground egress the FOC must quickly separate from the aviator without increasing the risk of injury. This report explores several alternatives in quick disconnect mechanisms.
