Paper Abstract

This paper will describe and discuss the head up display analysis routines that are used in the Thales Optics optical design software and how these have been enhanced and supplemented to meet the requirements of modern avionics specifications. Specific examples will be given illustrating methods of presenting collimation errors, binocular disparity, field of view, pupil shape and aperture definition on specific surfaces. Some of the methods of presenting collimation errors lend themselves to differential analysis making them useful for considering manufacturing tolerances.
