Paper Abstract

Work is currently underway to develop visual systems for warriors that provide different images to each eye (both in terms of resolution and visual field size), relying on binocular summation in the brain of the wearer to fuse the images into a common percept. The effect on the user employing such displays is not currently a part of the equipment development process. Literature involving similar visual conditions (either naturally occurring or through medical intervention) suggest that there are significant unresolved issues that must be investigated to determine if such displays may potentially negatively impact the visual perception of the wearer. This paper presents a summary of some of the related analogous conditions and identifies key issues that should be researched in parallel with the hardware.
