Paper Abstract

With the development of the integrated combat aircraft cockpit, advanced display concepts will become increasingly important if pilot's workload is to be maintained at a suitable level for effective missions to be flown. The Defence Research Agency (formerly RAE Farnborough) has been involved with the development of helmet-mounted display devices since the 1970s, in order to assess their suitability for integration into the modem combat aircraft cockpit. This paper gives an operator's perspective of the helmet mounted devices trialled, covering their evolution in simulators to flight trials in fast jets. Additionally, the impact of this technology on the development of future combat aircraft and associated flight simulation is addressed.
