Abstract
Currently the Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) connection to the aircraft is done via cable, generally called the Helmet Vehicle Interface (HVI). The current HVI systems have integration issues, human factor limitations, and safety concerns. A Wireless based HVI is needed to eliminate these shortcomings, bring enhanced capabilities to the warfighter, improve safety, and reduce cost. Our proposed solution is a wireless infrastructure that utilizes the advantages of a V-band technology while addressing the challenges of the 60 GHz band. This solution, code named A-ViFiTM, is a drop-in solution for airborne vehicles that allows different electronic devices onboard to communicate over 60GHz radio frequency, allowing for high throughput and secure communication. A-ViFiTM is conceived in order to overcome the challenges of V-band WLAN development and deployment. The scope of this project is to develop A-ViFi system prototype to be used with Flat Panel Display Demonstrator and produce a functional demo in a representative environment. This prototype unit will support: 3 non-overlapping video Channels (XGA resolution) 1 data channel
