Abstract : The development of diffraction optics to provide the largest possible Field OF View (FOV) has been, and will continue to be, the most difficult and important area of HUD design. As larger FOV's are developed, greater demands will be placed on display resolution. The display of grey scale video places increased demands on improved display brightness. Significant reliability improvements are also needed. This paper outlines current state-of-the-art and indicates potential future improvements that can be made in these areas.
