Paper Abstract

The `Crusader' Helmet Display System utilizes advanced optical technology to produce a high performance, fast jet pilot's Head Mounted Display. In particular it includes non- conformal reflection holograms on a novel polycarbonate visor to combine the display with the outside scene. Also, the relay optics include tilted, decentered and aspherical optical elements and transmission holograms to correct chromatic aberration.
