Paper Abstract

The use of a helmet mounted display system in a fixed-wing fighter will, without no doubt, increase the capabilities of that aircraft. Basic requirement of a helmet system could be fulfilled with a simple austere Helmet Mounted Sight. With new, more advanced, Helmet Mounted Displays that have greater possibilities to display a wide variety of information great emphasis must be made on the analysis of that information. The question of what kind of information that should be displayed in a HMD is certainly not a trivial one. This paper discusses a novel approach of trying to compress a lot of information into few symbols. The goal is to have a decluttered HMD and yet give the pilot superior situation awareness.
