Paper Abstract

In order to evaluate near-to-eye virtual displays with optics, Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate designed, developed, and integrated the Near to Eye Display Test Station (NDTS). The system utilizes kinematically interchangeable sensor heads to capitalize on the strengths of each sensor for the applications/measurements for which its best suited. The station allows the user to evaluate a near to eye display at a system level without separation of the eyepiece from the image source (“no disassembly required”). Mechanical, optical, electronics, and software components all needed to be carefully designed and integrated to maintain accuracy and precision above those required for display evaluation. Geometric and luminance internal calibration subsystems have been characterized by the test station with results that can be correlated.
