Abstract:

The objective of this SBIR project will be to research the applicability of helmet mounted displays to the E-2C mission. Specifically, since almost all helmet mounted displays are developed for the fighter/attack fixed-wing mission or the attack/scout rotary-wing mission, the question as to whether the available and near-term technology is readily adaptable to the E-2C AWACS mission requirements. To answer this question, in-depth analysis of mission related operational requirements will be performed to determine minimum performance requirements for any display system to meet. Research into helmet mounted display technology will then be performed to determine if current technology can meet these requirements. As part of this analysis, helmet mounted displays will be compared to flat panel displays to assess the effectiveness of the two technologies in meeting the operational requirements. Finally, a research roadmap will be proposed for further study in the effective display of information for the E-2C crew. The combined research, analysis, and assessments will form the basis for a recommended approach in meeting the needs of the E-2C cockpit crew.
