Paper Abstract

The Combat Vehicle Crew (CVC) head-mounted display (HMD) program has built the first high-resolution (1280 X 1024) flat panel head mounted display. The CVC HMD is designed for use by the tank commander of an M1 A2 main battle tank and will show both tactical IVIS information and thermal imagery from the commander's independent thermal viewer. The CVC HMD uses 1280 X 1024 active matrix electroluminescent image sources with 24 micrometers pixels and integrated digital drivers. The use of flat panels in the HMD design has allowed new optical and head integration approaches and has required new approaches to the HMD drive electronics. The integration of the first AMEL image sources has been completed and preliminary photometric and subjective image quality evaluations performed. The preliminary findings from these evaluations will be discussed and conclusions regarding the application of flat-panel HMDs presented.
