Abstract : This report is a review of human attention research literature relevant to head-up display (HUD) and helmet-mounted display (HMD) systems in use or under development for rotary-wing aircraft. The fundamental attentional issue for HUDs and HMDs is division of attention between the outside-the-window scene and the displayed symbology. Selective attention applies more to elements within the HUD or HMD symbology. The review identified a number of areas for further research. These are effects of dichoptic viewing, eye dominance, identification of strategies for effective time-sharing, HUD and HMD training, and pilot selection.
