Abstract:

An instrument is described for presenting attitude information to the pilot in such a manner that he may maintain an awareness of his attitude through Peripheral Vision without the necessity for looking directly at a specific instrument. The system does this by projecting a line of light on the aircraft instrument panel and moving it in a manner similar to the motion of the real horizon. A design criteria and a detailed engineering description of the working model are also presented.
