Minimum Performance Standard for Airborne Head Word Display (HWD)
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) specifies minimum performance standards for airborne Head Worn Displays in fixed wing and vertical flight aircraft. This document covers criteria for conformal and non- conformal HWD systems that are intended for use in the cockpit by the pilot or copilot. Display minimum performance characteristics are specified for standard and other environmental conditions for the purpose of product qualification.
Rationale: There is a need for this document as the industry moves toward wearable displays in the cockpit. This document is intended to provide the minimum standards for the purpose of certification. The need was realized when the FAA requested it.
