Abstract:

Helmet Mounted Display symbology has been designed to aid in landing a specific helicopter, the SH-2F, on small ships, utilizing the NAVTOLAND precision Landing Guidance System. A maximal display for single-pilot operation and a minimal display for two-pilot operation have been developed, both without head tracking. The maximal display provides all the necessary flight information in three modes for localizer acquisition, approach, and hover. Novel symbology is introduced for aiding the pilot in localizer acquisition under high wind conditions and for glide slope and localizer tracking during approach. The minimal display symbology relies on active participation by the co-pilot via verbal communication. In this display the presentation of the positioning information is based on the doppler Direction Velocity Indicator panel instrument format throughout approach and hover.
