Current military helmet-mounted display development includes systems for fixed wing aircraft pilots, rotary wing aircraft pilots, ground vehicle crew members, and dismounted warriors. Key programs, each having very distinct requirements, are underway at Honeywell that will provide integrated headgear systems for each of these applications. This paper presents an overview of parameters common to all helmet mounted displays, a summary of requirements unique to each user/platform, a description of the major design issues being addressed, and an outline of some new techniques now being applied to integrated headgear systems.
