Paper Abstract

A compact, binocular see-through, monocular display HMD has recently been manufactured by Rockwell Collins. This HMD allows for the projection of symbology on one eye using a unique see-through display while leaving the user's unaided eye completely unobscured. The HMD uses a prismatic element to project the symbology near infinity. An aspheric corrector is used in conjunction with the prismatic element to enable the user to experience binocular vision as well as symbology overlay. Distortion, resolution, dipvergence/convergence, contrast, and luminance are discussed.
