Abstract
Not Available Flight Visions, is a leader in the development of Head-Up Display Systems that are two times more accurate, half the weight and 2/3 the size of competitors HUDs. Considering this, the primary responsibility of this program is to discover a new technology to replace the CRT. Most CRT's are replaced because of degraded brightness. The CRT half-life is normally less than 1000 hours because they generally operate at relatively high brightness levels. Flight Visions proposes to do a feasibility study of three different technologies: AMLCD Light Valve, MEMS, and Laser. One technology will be selected for a further conceptual study and preliminary designs for implementation will be accomplished. Ultimately, a demonstration unit would evolve during Phase II. The selected technology must have proven reliability and provide: adequate luminance for operation in an open cockpit in bright sunlight, good contrast ratio, adequate resolution, good repeatability, and accuracy. Typically, the brightness requires 1600 ft-Lamberts minimum reflected light off of the HUD combiners into the pilot's eyes. Assuming a reflection coefficient of 30% for frequency selective combiners, the incident light intensity from the HUD lens system must be approximately 5000 ft-Lamberts. Accounting for efficiencies, transmissivity of the lens, and engineering margins; the technology must have luminance capability of at least 10,000 ft-Lamberts. Also, the resolution of the technology must be at least 1000 X 1
