Abstract
THIS DISPLAY TECHNIQUE USES A SERIES OF ACCURATELY PLACED PARTIALLY REFLECTING MIRRORS (RESEMBLING CURVED LOUVERS) WITHIN THE VISOR THICKNESS IN AN AREA THE DISPLAY IS DESIREDTO BE OBSERVED. THE DISPLAY CAN BE PLACED AT ALMOST ANY POSITION AROUND THE HELMET EDGE. THE OPTICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE LOUVERS ALLOW THE DISPLAY TO BE DIRECTED TOWARD THE EYE. THE ABILITY TO BE ABLE TO DESIGN A LOUVER MIRROR "FIELD" FOR A PARTICULAR DISPLAY (IRREGARDLESS OF ITS POSITION AROUND THE HELMET EDGE) NOW ALLOWS THESE FIELDS OF VIEW TO BE CONNECTED IN SERIES TO GIVE COMPLETE PANORAMIC VIEWS OF DISJOINTED DISPLAYS.
