The virtual cockpit concept being developed by the Air Force will require a helmet mounted eye tracker to be integrated with a helmet-mounted virtual panoramic display VPD. Eye tracker measurements will be used with prototype systems to assist in candidate display evaluation. Operationally, eye tracking will be used for eye controlled switch selection, cueing, eye-slaved aiming, and pilot state monitoring. Current eye tracking technology is reviewed in Volume 1 of this report. Relevant physiological considerations and the performance requirements implied by each of the above VPD tasks are thoroughly reviewed in Volume 2. A pupil center-to-corneal reflex technique is proposed as the most suitable technique for a VPD eye tracker. The need for robustness and dependability in the virtual cockpit Eye movements, Oculometers, Man-computer interface, Helmet-mounted displays.
