Paper Abstract

One approach to decreasing the size and weight of a helmet-mounted display while maintaining a wide-field-of-view and adequate image resolution is to use a partial binocular-overlap configuration. With a partial binocular-overlap helmet-mounted display the user would see a central binocular image flanked by two monocular images. Properly implemented, the user should not be aware of the partial-overlap condition, but would benefit from the reduced weight, decreased size, and extended field-of-view. However, the successful implementation of a partial-overlap design requires understanding of and solutions for several complex problems.
