Paper Abstract

The use of Helmet-Mounted Trackers and Displays (HMT/Ds) is becoming widespread for air-to-air, within visual range target acquisition; however these systems have physiological limitations. The Air Force Research Laboratory Helmet- Mounted Sensory Technologies (HMST) program is currently studying the use of eye trackers to cue High Off Boresight Angle missiles. The development and implementation of an eye tracker can eliminate the problems of limited head motion under high gravitational forces. This paper will discuss some of the HMST requirements needed to perform eye tracking for air-to-air targeting to complement HMT/Ds performance. This paper will also include a review of the different approaches being studied to meet those requirements.
