Gentex Corporation presents experience with the first binocular implementation of its Scorpion Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) System. Gentex has a working prototype for a binocular version of Scorpion, using two Scorpion PD-14 displays mounted on a single helmet. The prototype has excellent characteristics for a binocular helmet. The displays' optical characteristics make them easy to harmonize and comfortable to use without eyestrain. The displays are light enough not to unduly affect the weight of the helmet or center of gravity. Harmonization, which has been a significant problem with other binocular display systems, is easy to achieve, and once achieved remains fixed without issue.
