A.III.D.12. Advanced Helicopter Pilotage Phase I/II. Develop and demonstrate advanced night vision pilotage technology and revolutionary helmet-mounted display (HMDS) technology for night/adverse weather helicopter pilotage. By FY95, develop Image Intensified (I2) sensor and fast (60 Hz) focal plane array for wide FOV FLIR. By FY96, conduct flight demonstration and evaluation of sensor technology for wide field of view FLIR and Image Intensifier (I2). By FY98, demonstrate ultra-wide FOV (40° x 80°) night pilotage systemHMDS and dual spectrum (IR and I2) sensors in a single turretto provide a significant reduction in pilot cognitive and physical work load.
