New NASA Augmented Reality Super Helmet

11
Now the fog and adverse weather conditions are not a problem for American combat pilots: NASA developed the latest projection helmet by the aerospace agency NASA.

The US Aerospace Agency NASA (Langley Research Center) and the Pentagon are developing a new gadget for pilots - the Augmented Reality helmet (Augmented Reality).

The essence of the novelty, which, according to experts, will interest not only combat pilots, but also civilian pilots aviation, lies in the fact that the new device, in addition to the real picture that unfolds before their eyes, generates virtual images. Thus, the general view is complemented. This is especially important in conditions of poor visibility, which can occur, for example, during military operations with the setting of disorienting or camouflage smoke, as well as in bad weather with rain and thick fog.

The presence in the device of sensors and several gyroscopes allow pilots to see not only what is possible to see with the naked eye, but also to receive a picture “drew up” by electronics of what is hidden by natural obstacles. This is very important during takeoff and landing, as well as taxiing the aircraft along the taxiway and the runway. It was during these operations that, as a rule, accidents occurred, and quite often due to the fact that the pilot did not see something or could not figure it out.

Approximately such a “picture” will be seen by a pilot in a new helmet


In addition, the helmet is equipped with a speech recognition system that allows the pilot to give voice commands to various aircraft systems.

Augmented Reality is being developed as part of Synthetic Vision, the multi-purpose Pentagon program. American designers have developed a number of "virtual" helmets for aviation under this program.

    Technologies do not stand still, I won’t be surprised if in 10-15 years there will not be any at all, and the picture will be delivered directly to the brain, unless of course the pilots are. smile

    If they have pilots by then, then let them screw this x-ray ... in parallel, not forgetting to ground ...

    And, most likely there will be UAVs, and the boys will control the joysticks somewhere in Miami.

    In my opinion, the glasses in the photo are uncomfortable, the part where the screen greatly outweighs.

    Perhaps that is so, but safety is most common.

    We implant the chip in the cerebellum, the USB port on the pumpkin. The perfect solger.

    Oh, until they make about 100 years, or they will do the bullshit again, or the efficiency is small, or the last century, or too expensive!

    Well, judging by the picture ... somewhere in the airplane another kilogram of 300 equipment is hiding ... At least on the F-18, a similar system weighs 250 kg.

    Nothing surprising. Yet in the 80s, both the Americans and the USSR already had helmet-mounted target designation systems. The Americans did not stop and upgraded the systems.
