Paper Abstract

The innovative technology utilized in the Scorpion HMCS has broken several product and price barriers which now allow it to be used in both traditional and non-traditional applications. In particular, its bright color display provides a new dimension for informational content and vastly improved situational awareness. Users are just beginning to explore the ways that color can be used in an HMD projection display. Scorpion has also broken through price and installation cost barriers allowing, for the first time, its use on platforms that could otherwise never have afforded a helmet mounted display. Scorpion HMCS units are currently being used for both traditional cueing as well as unique new applications in both airborne and maritime platforms. These applications are further described as well as other potential roles for the Scorpion HMCS.
