Abstract:

This effort compared five flight simulator visual display configurations using a simulated aerial refueling task. The configurations were a a helmet-mounted stereoscopic display with a 40 deg field of view FOV, b a helmet-mounted biocular display with a 40 deg FOV, c the full Advanced Simulator for Pilot Training ASPT 300 FOV, d the ASPT visual display masked to present a 40 deg FOV, and e lead lanthanum zirconate titanate PLZT googles stereoscopic using one ASPT window. Performance of pilots using the different display configurations was observed. The results indicated that horizontal position was maintained better with the wide-FOV ASPT display and that boom movement was minimized with the stereoscopic display. Keywords Advanced Simulator for Pilot Training flight simulation helmet-mounted PLZT goggles and visual displays.
