Paper Abstract

The applications of color symbology, graphics, and imagery in helmet-mounted displays have the potential to reduce workload and improve piloting performance. Unfortunately, there are three well-recognized paradigms that disallow the use of color in helmet-mounted displays in aviation environments. We provide evidence of three corresponding paradigm shfts that encourage the use of color in these displays. The rationales for these paradigm shifts are based on new methods of training and rehearsing, new lighting environments, and new display technologies.
