Paper Abstract

Conventional head-up display (HUD) optics are relatively limited in both instantaneous field of view (IFOV) and display brightness and may be inadequate some applications. Considerable improvements to both parameters may be made by the use of pupil relay optics employing powered holographic combiners but this type of system tends to be complex and relatively expensive. The usefulness of conventional HUD optics may be increased by the use of combiners that improve instantaneous elevation field of view or display brightness.
