Paper Abstract

The paper discusses specifics of high resolution 3D sensor systems employed in helicopter DVE support systems and the consequences for the resulting HMI. 3D sensors have a number of specifics making them a cornerstone for helicopter pilot support or pilotage systems intended for use in DVE. Retrieving depth information gives specific advantages over 2D imagers. On the other hand certain technology and physics inherent specifics require a more elaborate visualization procedure compared to 2D image visualization. The goal of all displayed information has to be to reduce pilots workload in DVE operations. Therefore especially for displaying the processed information on an HMD as 3D conformal data requires thorough HMI considerations.
