Abstract:

This document describes the laboratory demonstration of the Visual Augmentation System VAS and components, later installed in the Model 347 helicopter, and the results of tests of operational parameters pertinent to the performance and suitability for in-flight evaluation i.e., TV camera functions and optical characteristics such as focus, field of view, sensitivity, linearity resolution and vibration, electromagnetic compatibility environmental tolerance. Based on the results of the tests and demonstrations, it was concluded that the VAS was suitable for use in the flight evaluation test program.
