Paper Abstract

The future military pilot might have to fly some mission segments--notably ingress, attack, and egress-- without any benefit whatsoever of looking out of the cockpit. Threats, together with night, in-weather, low-level flight conditions and lasers, may require high definition displays in 21st century cockpits. Eventually, a large area display suite may become necessary to survival, let alone mission success. Such a system might be a 2000 cm2 (300 in2) head \-down color multi-function, multi-window display coupled with a head-mounted system and would have to operate with a clear as well as an opaque canopy. This paper addressed hardware developments needed to create high definition large area cockpit display systems.
