Paper Abstract

Helmet mounted displays (HMD) and auto-ground weapons delivery are as integral to attack rotorcraft today as bread is to a sandwich. Mission and system requirements have been studied extensively and design data available includes engineering analysis simulation studies flight testing, and combat results. However, very little design data, is available to establish HMD specifications for the emerging attack rotorcraft air-to-air mission requirements. Even cursory analysis of the air-to-air mission indicates several areas which differ from the air- missions studied in the past and these differences impact HMD and overall system requirements. The primary se of this paper is to examine the counterair mission for future attack rotors-raft and the implications for crew station design requirements, specifically regarding Heyes out', display and control technologies. The findings of research programs are discussed.
