Paper Abstract

We will discuss design image-optimization for helmet mounted displays (HMDs) in the context of a system engineering approach that includes a description of natural targets in the field, a description of perceptual characteristics of the human visual system, and device specifications that relate to these ecological and human-factors parameters that ultimately determine task performance. We will consider two HMD system as examples: the GEN III (AN/PVS-7A) night vision goggle (NVG) system and the SIPE helmet system (Soldier''s Integrated Protective Ensemble), both developed by S-TRON for use by the US Army.
