Abstract:

The successful integration of technology and human factors meets its ultimate challenge in the area of military performance. Nowhere are the stakes so high and the competition so rigorous as in the arena of combat. This paper documents the attempt to define, develop, and test a standardized interface for helmet-mounted tracker and displays aircraft. The design that has been evolved is based upon active use and refinement in an environment that is as close to combat conditions as resources permit. Many of the design ideas and lessons-learned covered in this paper came either directly or indirectly from pilots and support personnel of the USAF 422 Test and Evaluations Squadron located at Nellis AFB NV.
