Developments in panel mounted head down flight instruments are described. The achievement of increased integration of instrument indications together with the use of a flight director indicating demanded action by the pilot by instrumental techniques which separate the functions of sensing, computation and display are discussed. Further simplification of the pilots task by super-position of essential elements of the instrument field on the external field, using optical projection of collimated information onto a reflector plate of the windscreen hear up display, is also described. The addition to normal flight instrument indications of a pictorial topographical display of ground position and track by optical projection of micro colour transparencies of maps as a continuous automatic plotting facility is described.
