Paper Abstract

The advent of flat panel display technology has created new thermal challenges for the integration of the image sources into helmet mounted displays. Each of the leading display technologies, when driven to high brightness, leads to heat dissipation challenges. For the higher brightness displays it will be shown that active cooling systems are necessary. Further discussions suggest that display peak brightness and resulting heat output may be reduced to mitigate some of the thermal control problems.
