F-35 HMD demo at OPL, Iowa


Short two day trip to University of Iowa on behalf of ITPS, in order to evaluate a Rockwell Collins F-35 HMD setup in an L-29 LVC simulation environment at the Operator Performance Laboratory (OPL). During the flight A/G and A/A scenarios were loaded demonstrating the operation and mode relevant symbology of the F-35 HMD, while in the same time, electrocardiogram (ECG) sensors were providing via telemetry real time assessment of the workload involved in the various phases of the missions. Additionally a hop was performed in an Mi-2 helicopter equipped with a LIDAR generating real-time obstacle cues on the HMD. Pretty cool flights and lots of lessons learnt on HMDs.
