Abstract:

WE PROPOSE TO PROTOTYPE AN INTERNALLY MOUNTED FLAT PANEL COLOR LCD STEREO DISPLAY ASSEMBLY (SDA) TO SERVE AS A SPACE SUIT HEADS-UP DISPLAY (HUD), HELMET I. THE DISPLAY WILL BE CONNECTED TO OUR COMPUTER SYSTEM WHICH IS CAPABLE OF PROVIDING HIGH COLOR RESOLUTRON (32,768 COLORS), REAL TIME (60 FRAMES/SEC) IMAGES. IMAGES CAN BE OBTAINED FROM REMOTE CAMERAS, FROM MEMORY, OR BE GENERATED BY THE COMPUTER. TWO FULL COLOR IMAGE PLANES ARE AVAILABLE, ONE CAN BE A LIVE OR STORED VIDEO IMAGE AND THE OTHER IS AN OVERLAY PLANE FOR COMPUTER GENERATED OR STORED INFORMATION, DATA OR IMAGES. THE ASTRONAUT CAN CONTROL THE COMPUTER BY VOICE COMMAND. WE WILL PRODUCE "SHORTS" WHICH ARE SEQUENCES OF IMAGES WHICH VISIBLY AND AUDIBLY DETAIL HOW A PARTICULAR TASK IS ACCOMPLISHED. THESE SHORTS WILL BE STORED ON WORM OPTICAL DISKS ALONG WITH OTHER MAINTENANCE DATA. THE SYSTEM WILL INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY OF EVA TIME BY PROVIDING REALTIME STEREO IMAGES OF REQUISITE SEQUENCES FOR TASK COMPLETION. IT WILL DISPLAY ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL AND LIFE SUPPORT AND MANNED MANEUVERING UNIT DATA OVER THE OTHER IMAGES OF REQUIRED TASKS WHILE THEY ARE BEING PERFORMED.
