Abstract:

This report details the development of a fiber-optic-coupled helmet-mounted display. A working breadboard model has been developed. A computer-generated image projected from a light valve is relayed to the input of a large format coherent fiber-optic bundle. The fiber-optic bundle transfers the image to a set of helmet-mounted optics which display the imagery via two in-line, wide-angle infinity displays. The helmet position and attitude are sensed and used to control the image content. Studies were also conducted on requirement for eye-slaved control of image content.
