Paper Abstract

There has been significant research completed attempting to optimize the portrayal of ownship attitude information (OAI) via the Helmet-Mounted Display and, there has simultaneously been resistance by the user community regarding the inclusion of OAI. The stated reason is usually because they find it unnecessary. This paper includes a review of both sides of this discussion and attempts to make the case that, similar to the evolution of the Head-Up Display as a primary flight reference, there are likely operational performance and safety-of-flight reasons to justify off-axis OAI within even limited field-of-view applications.
