Paper Abstract

SA Photonics has developed (with support from the Air Force Research Lab, the US Army and Vision Systems International) an innovative wide field of view digital night vision head mounted display (HMD). This HMD has an 80 degree field of view to greatly improve operator situational awareness. By using creating an all-digital system, we provide the capability to enhance and record night vision imagery, overlay symbology, and inset video from remote sensors, either mounted on the aircraft or on UAVs. This HMD has been designed with maximum pilot utility in mind, and is easily stowable without impacting center of gravity or maneuverability of the pilot's head within the cockpit. Because the sensors are digital, they can be located right above the pilot's eyes removing any hyperstereoopsis.
