Paper Abstract

Pilot workload is rapidly approaching unmanageable proportions. Programs involving sensor fusion and technologies such as Head-up-Displays and Multi-function Displays are being pursued to help the pilot reduce workload and increase their situational awareness. The Helmet-Mounted Systems Technology program office is developing an integrated Helmet-mounted Display system which will dramatically increase the pilot's situational awareness under all operational conditions and improve weapon system mission effectiveness. In order to aëcomplish this, the program must take into account requirements, current state-of-the-art and projected availability of technologies. The HMST program office uses a System Engineering approach to tie together the key technologies and interfaces which are required in the development of helmet-mounted displays. Several of the key technologies discussed in this paper include 3-D audio, a high voltage quick disconnect connector, displays and standardized symbology.
