Abstract:

A helmet tracker is a critical element in the path that delivers targeting and other sensor data to the user of a helmet-mounted display HMD in a military aircraft. This paper reviews helmet tracker technology with respect to use in military aviation. The human factors limitations of helmet tracker systems for delivering both targeting and flight reference information to a military pilot are also discussed. This paper also presents data collected from the Dynamic Tracker Test Apparatus DTTA. The DTTA was designed by the Helmet Mounted Sensory Technology HMST laboratory to accurately measure azimuth rotation in both static and dynamic conditions.
