Abstract
Combat developers and aviation program managers require knowledge of helmet-mounted display (HMD) performance under operational conditions in order to determine HMD luminance and contrast requirements. In order to ease this problem, we developed a computer model that predicts available gray-shades based on hardware, ambient light condition, and HMD properties. Included in the model are windscreens, visors, laser protection devices, and properties of developed and fielded HMDs. A graphical user interface and user variables specification allow the developer/manager to model HMDs in specific aircraft. Included with the model is a color model that predicts see-through color imagery. The model produces a visualization of see-through imagery superimposed with HMD symbology based upon model predictions. This allows the user to view simulated imagery as though he were wearing the HMD.
