Paper Abstract

The presentation traces the development and application of Garrett's Peripheral Vision Display - sometimes known as the Peripheral Vision Horizon Device, or Malcolm Horizon - from the beginning of commercial development to its initial series production and operational application in military aircraft. Problems of reducing a unique, advanced technology concept to standard military practice, and those associated with its flight testing by trained and untrained test pilots, are highlighted. Conclusions with respect to the conduct of the program are drawn and predictions are made regarding the future of such displays.
