Abstract:

This report contains a review of the literature on electro-optical flight displays with special emphasis on rotary-wing aircraft. The primary focus of this review was to find research studies in which different symbology formats were compared experimentally. Research of this type was found to be, for the most part, sorely lacking in literature. However, some valuable work has been done in effort to demonstrate the feasibility of certain specific systems. This work should be taken as a baseline in developing candidate symbology formats to be tested empirically to arrive at an optimal standard for rotary-wing EO displays. Author
