Abstract : A search of literature was conducted on helmet mounted sights (HMSs) and related helmet mounted displays (HMDs). The result was 42 entries that are grouped under broad subject headings of human factors, design and evaluation, and other related areas. Human factors deals with issues relating to human performance with HMSs and HMDs. Design and evaluation covers work that is focused more on the helmet systems. Work in related areas includes material that fits neither of the other categories, but which is relevant. Entries are accompanied by an abstract, annotation, or both. This bibliography represents present understanding of issues involved with the current state of technology. Rapid growth in computer technology suggests that developments in this area will accelerate rapidly, indicating a need for maintaining commensurate research effort in human performance in the virtual environments that this technology is providing.
