11 August 1998 Evolution of helmet-mounted display requirements and Honeywell HMD/HMS systems
Author Affiliations +
This paper discusses the changing requirements for helmet mounted display (HMD) and helmet mounted sight (HMS) system from the early 1960s through the present. Honeywell has pioneered HMD and HMS development for military applications and has been the only production source of HMDs used on the USA's military fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft to date. Honeywell is continuing to pursue HMD and HMS opportunities in the world marketplace and has recently begun to apply its HMD systems expertise to HMD systems for ground vehicles and the dismounted soldier.
