Paper Abstract

The Strategic Air Command is currently in the process of contracting production quantities of Night Vision Goggle Head—Up Display (NVG/HUD) systems for their conventional mission B—52G aircraft. This system displays flight and navigation information onto a combiner glass which is mounted to one of the NVG objective lenses. This allows the pilot to have an "eyes out" orientation, thereby decreasing communication and workload, and increasing mission safety, situational awareness, and mission effectiveness. This report will attempt to reconstruct the development history to date of the NVG/HUD system, and how it finally was incorporated into the B—52 airplane.
