Paper Abstract

HMDs have severe demands on luminance and resolution. There is a requirement to view the display over a range of ambient illumination from full sunlight to night and to provide high accuracy for weapon release. Installation constraints further complicate the optical design and mass is crucial for the head mounted hardware. Currently the only display device that can met these demands is the monochrome cathode ray tube (CRT). This paper explores the potential for replacing the CRT. THe problem areas such as installation, illumination and drive are discussed and the suitability of various technologies is considered. The potential for color is also reviewed.
