The Helmet-Mounted Display HMD is a primary component of a Visually-Coupled System VCS. Commercially available optical links for the HMDs are available but expensive. Ray-tracing techniques were employed to investigate the possibility of using off-the-shelf lenses in an optical link. Four inexpensive, simple-magnifier systems were designed and evaluated with a new device, the HMD optical test instrument. The theory of geometric optics limits such an optical to the simple-magnifier systems.
