Microvision Wins NASA Contract for Virtual Cockpit Helmet Display

Photonics.com
Jul 2002
BOTHELL, Wash., July 10 -- Microvision Inc. has been awarded a $1.9 million development contract with NASA Langley Research Center to deliver a prototype cockpit helmet display system for the Synthetic Vision Systems project.

The advanced display will support NASA research of a compact, low-power, lightweight display solution for existing and future air transport, business and general aviation aircraft. The contract award defines a prototype delivery within 12 months.

NASA is pursuing advanced technologies that reduce accident rates and improve aviation safety by eliminating low-visibility conditions as a causal factor to civil aircraft accidents. Current flight deck head-down display media is constrained by available cockpit space, while head-up display media is constrained by horizontal and vertical field-of-view and the lack of full-color capability.
