Paper Abstract

The Night Vision & Electronics Sensors Directorate and Kaiser Electronics have continued to further develop the driver's Head-Tracked Vision System (HTVS) which directs dual waveband sensors in a more natural head-slewed imaging mode. The HTVS consists of a Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) sensor, an image-intensified sensor, a high-speed gimbal, a head-mounted display, and a head-tracker. The first prototype systems have been delivered and have undergone preliminary field trials to characterize the operational benefits of a head-tracked sensor system for tactical military ground applications. This investigation will address the advancements of the HTVS Head-Mounted Display (HMD) and head-tracker, and will discuss the advantages of additive image fusion and feature-level image fusion of the LWIR and image-intensified sensors over single-sensor performance.
