Paper Abstract

This paper outlines an approach to simulate and validate the attenuation performance of Integrated Helmet Display designs within BAE Systems. The validation studies are performed at material coupon, sub-system and system levels of Display and Helmet designs to facilitate integrated Display Helmet model development and allow a rigorous assessment of model accuracy. Simulation results are presented which show close agreement with the shape of the acceleration history and peak acceleration values obtained in laboratory scale qualification tests conducted at the British Standards Institute (BSI). The final system level model provides a detailed insight into the key characteristics which effect attenuation performance in Integrated Display Helmet designs. The overall aim of this work is to develop and validate models which can be used to assess the influence of design modifications on current and future Display Helmet products within BAE Systems. The application of simulation for product development is regarded as a key driver within BAE Systems to reducing the development cost of Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) products and improving product performance.
