Paper Abstract

Some of the factors which should be considered in Head-Up Display (HUD) Recording design are presented in this paper. The location of the recording device relative to the pilot, HUD, and windshield is discussed as well as the need for consideration of a recording capability early in the design stages of the HUD and the aircraft crew station. Film type cameras are the only presently used HUD recording device. Factors to be considered in selecting field-of-view, focal length, resolution, frame rate, exposure control, over-run capability, CRT update synchronization, camera activation, and film related mechanisms are discussed. Results of a trade-off study between a film type camera and a video tape recorder are also covered.
