This is the second biennial interim report for the study titled The Effect of a Monocular Helmet-Mounted Display on Aircrew Health A Cohort Study of Apache AH Mk 1 Pilots. The principal aim of this occupational health study is to determine if the use of the monocular Integrated Helmet and Display Sighting System IHADSS helmet-mounted display HMD in the British Armys Apache AH Mk 1 attack helicopter has any long-term effect on visual performance. Additional information concerning other unique problems of the Apache AH Mk 1 aircrew is elicited as a secondary objective. This study is a collaborative effort between the British Army and the U.S. Army and is conducted under the auspices of The Technical Cooperative Program TTCP, Subgroup U, Technical Panel 7 Human Factors in the Aviation Environment. The current report presents the longitudinal data analysis for the approximate 5-year period January 2000 to December 2004. Visual performance data are examined for within- and between-subject differences for seven exposed AH Mk 1 and 23 control subjects with a minimum of 3 years of measured data.
