Abstract : This section describes the optical quality measurement procedures that were adopted to evaluate the LANTIRN HUD. The objective of these measurements was to determine how suitable the HUD optics were for matching human visual requirements. The measurements were directed to the optical components and did not include the cathode-ray tube (CRT) and symbology generation quality. Measurements fell into two broad categories, those that characterized visual quality viewing through the combiner (effect on outside world target acquisition) and those that concentrated on the visual characteristics associated with viewing the symbology. Measurement procedures for each of these parameters will be described with its relationship to and effect on vision.
