Paper Abstract

Helmet mounted displays have a significant role to play in a number of military airborne applications. Many concepts have been built and tested over the past 20 years, but very few have been adopted for extensive use in the demanding environment found in typical military aircraft cockpits. Of the many types of display configurations tried, display projection off the visor is, from the users point of view, the preferred method of presentation and several development products of this type are now available. GEC-Marconi Avionics 'VIPER' is an approach to this particular helmet mounted display configuration, and was conceived with the objective of using well proven techniques, technologies and where possible standard flight equipment. This paper discusses the design approach, trade offs and initial flight trials experience with the Viper Helmet Mounted Display.
