Abstract
To support the development of technologies that enable helicopters to operate safely and effectively in degraded visual environments (DVE), a set of visual information requirements (VIRs) for pilotage have been defined as an input to a sensor assessment. A sensor assessment methodology has been defined that utilises laboratory tests, field data gathering and aircrew assessments to fine-tune industry standard EO sensor models such that the performance of sensors and combinations of sensors can be evaluated against the VIRs. The results of such an assessment utilising passive EO sensors covering wavebands from Visible to LWIR have been used to derive performance requirements for a future DVE vision system concept.
