Abstract
This study investigated the impact on near to eye displays on both operational and visual performance employing a human-in-the-loop simulation of straight-in ILS approaches while using a near to eye (NTE) display. The approaches were flown in simulated visual and instrument conditions while using either a binocular NTE or a monocular NTE display on either the dominant or non dominant eye. The pilot's flight performance, visual acuity, and ability to detect unsafe conditions on the runway were tested.
