Abstract : The U.S. Army currently fields two helmet mounted display systems. These are the Integrated Helmet and Display Sighting System (IHADSS), which is employed on the AH-64 Apache, and the Aviator's Night Vision Imaging System (ANVIS), which is employed on all U.S. Army rotary wing aircraft. The performance and figures of merit specifications provide the basis for judging performance of future aviation electrooptical devices. This paper specifies in summary form performance parameters for different figures-of-merit which can be used to define the overall performance of the IHADSS and ANVIS.
