Abstract
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of different candidates transparent head- coupled helmet-mounted display (HMD) target location symbology orientations on search and intercept performance during an air-to-air task. Orientation, as it refers to HMD symbology, is the method by which the information is referenced and related to the observer. HMD symbology can be coded so that it responds to ownship maneuvering (within the world coordinate system) as well as observer head movement (within the ownship coordinate system). Three symbology orientations were compared to the traditional head-up-display target location symbology: One of the candidate symbologies was referenced to ownship maneuvering, a second was referenced to head movement, and the last was referenced both ownship and head movement. The objective and subjective findings suggest that HMD target location information is advantageous and that ownship referenced information presented via a HMD may be more useful than previously believed.
