The development of data generating sensors and computers in a modern fixed wing aircraft is not met by an increase in sensorial performance by the operator to assimilate this data. No new sensor has been developed nor has any drastic increase in data perception been implemented in the human operator since the first manned flight by the Wright brothers. Consequently we have to refine the media and the way in which we present data to the pilot. This document describes a platform for test and evaluation of head mounted technology and some new technologies that can be used for decreasing the pilot's workload. Furthermore, the document describes initial tests done on image quality and design of reflective coatings on visors.
