Russia is testing a multimedia helmet for pilots of Su-57 fighters

Russian developers continue the process of preparing multimedia helmets for use by pilots of the Russian Aerospace Forces of the Russian Federation. We are talking about augmented reality helmets, which are developed primarily for pilots of the 5th generation Su-57 fighters.


Information Agency TASS with reference to the press service of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), reports on the passing of tests of the multimedia helmet of the Su-57 pilot developed by Russian specialists. It is noted that a promising helmet will help the pilot not only control a combat vehicle, but also capture a target for subsequent attack on it with those in the arsenal. weapons.

The message says that a helmet-mounted target designation and indication system has been created, which is integrated into the Su-57 pilot's helmet. The indication is carried out on the glass of the visor of the protective helmet of a whole range of data, including flight information, the image of the space outside the cockpit of the fighter, formed by cameras and thermal imagers.

Such a helmet-mounted system will allow the pilots of the Russian Aerospace Forces to carry out operations in difficult meteorological conditions, in the dark, to perform complex maneuvers.

Recall that earlier a multimedia helmet was created in the United States for pilots of F-35 fighters. Its original price was 700 thousand dollars. Then they managed to reduce it by about half. However, American military pilots continue to criticize the US-designed helmet. For example, if the pilot tilts his head down or turns at a sufficiently large angle, then the information on the visor of the helmet may be displayed incorrectly due to the misaligned coordinate axes. In this case, there is a "side" in the form of a green glow. The fact that in the United States such a problem has been resolved has not yet been reported. The Chinese Air Force also has multimedia helmets.

    The helmet is great, a very useful piece. But what about the second stage engine, is it a question of questions?

      And complex.
      Hopefully, a pilot with a helmet-mounted system will still be able to fully pilot in the event of a system failure or failure.

      Yes, the engine is not a question of questions, he (Su-57) and the first stage is good.
      The question in avionics, software and Belka onboard radar - how much did you manage?
      Does everything work properly?
      Does the pilot cope with the information flow?
      These are the questions.
      And the glider has been flying for a long time. But this is only a glider.

    The difference between the new NSCI is that the projection of the image goes to both eyes, creating a steroimage. It is very convenient because all the main indicators and flight parameters are constantly in front of your eyes. The implementation of this technology will lead to a psychological restructuring of the flight perception and the pilot's spatial position. How effectively the pilot can adapt remains to be explored. In any case, this is the near future. But the system also has significant drawbacks. So the technology is there, they began to implement it, but as often happens, it will be significantly improved. But in general, the thing is cool, when the whole picture, as if in your eyes, is impressive. After that, I seriously waited for google glass glasses on sale)))))

      For stereo, you need two video cameras with an appropriate base. Otherwise, there will be no stereo. People who, due to their profession, often watch stereo films, notice a decrease in the effect over time. The brain adapts. After all, this stereo is not "real".
      Can you explain these problems in more detail? Will you put paired stereo cameras, for example? And how will the pilot's vision change?

        The main point of the NSCI is not to shoot a video for YouTube in go-pro cameras, but the projection of the flight parameters and control of the aircraft systems not on the windshield indicator, but on the glazing flap, so that, regardless of the position of the head and the gaze of the pilot, he LA.
        Regarding the influence on the pilot, this is a matter of future scientific articles and Ph.D.)).
        At the initial stage, the main goal of research is to confirm that this works in principle, and only the second, already in the course of the appearance of statistics, is an in-depth study of the consequences. Single samples cannot be disassembled as with covid vaccine. It takes time and practice of real operation

      So it is so, but he is also expensive. For the Su-57, the ZSH-10 helmet was developed, it is modular and this is its advantage: the standard light filter and casing are removed, the NSCI and a new light filter are installed. An analogue of the ZSH-10 helicopter ZSH-17, which is distinguished by the absence of an occipital compensator and other headset connectors. On the ZSH-17, a night vision device is similarly hung. Thus, you can upgrade your regular helmet as needed.

      but there is a helmet without NSCI, although one photo of the ZSH-17 in full stuffing. The NSCI about which the article is new, it came to us for testing 6-7 years ago, so it was in the process of eliminating jambs. This technology is still used for the first time.

    The main problem of such devices is increased visual and psychological fatigue, since the flow of information increases significantly, and the effect of "remote perception" does not go anywhere, regardless of what resolution such a system has. No matter how much you look at the TV, be it at least 100K, the eye gets tired more than with the usual visual perception of reality (not added and not virtual). As a result, cranial pressure, dry eye effect, risk of strokes, nervousness, etc. increase. side effects.
    The only way to deal with this is to make the time spent in such augmented reality limited. Those. enable it as needed. Maybe automatically ...

      This is for the adult generation.
      "Dinosaurs" from the 20th century, so to speak.
      Young people do not have any special effects from virtual reality.
      Ordinary eyeglasses, we note, are also a kind of "augmented reality".

        Sorry, but apparently you just do not understand some aspects of human physiology (processing of visual images), which has practically not changed for several thousand years. ))
        ...
        To understand those who are not in the subject. The new generation has, sorry, "the eggs have not turned gray." That is why it is "new". Well, this generation has not matured to the beginning of the first signs of hypertension or farsightedness. But when they will be 40-50 years old, then they will still be much worse (!) Than those who faced the virtual world in their 35-40 and who are now about 60.
        With regards to ordinary glasses, your assumption all the more does not stand up to criticism, since glasses have not yet added sight to anyone, although they have nothing to do with augmented reality. How many people I know, everyone who wears glasses (ALL), vision deteriorates at one rate or another. Someone is faster, someone is slower. I have two visually impaired people in my family. I have worn myself for the last 15 years (first +5, then +7 and so on, now +15).
        And the last thing about virtual reality. Read on the Internet about the effect of fragmentation of consciousness and deterioration of concentration on long-term tasks, when the flow of very short, rapidly changing data in the brain increases dramatically. With prolonged exposure to such flows, people become trite dull, the possibility of logical processing of complex conceptual images worsens. There are many quite serious and detailed medical articles on this topic.
        So, what will become those who are not even 40 years old now, and who sit in virtual for a long time, we have yet to see, in 15-20 years.
        ...
        And one more thing .. I'm not proving anything to anyone here, and I'm not going to substantiate anything. All statistics and research results on these topics are available online. Whoever needs it will find and read it.

          For another 200 years, physically strong men were valued. The more muscles, the
          higher value in the marriage market. Will earn more.
          Smart people are now valued. The smarter, the more beautiful a woman will choose you.
          More changes have occurred in 200 years than in the previous 2000.
          Virtual reality is the next round.
          If you do not join it, you will remain a "peasant with a scythe." A laughing stock.

    Recall that earlier a multimedia helmet was created in the United States for pilots of F-35 fighters.

    On this aircraft, information from onboard systems, optoelectronic cameras and thermal imagers is transmitted to the protective glass of the helmet. The image displayed on the glass is focused to infinity, so that all data remains readable regardless of which point in space the pilot's eye is focused on.
    The F-35 pilot's helmet is equipped with several head position sensors. With their help, the augmented reality system tracks the movements of the pilot's head and, in accordance with the sensor data, shifts the image displayed on the visor. The F-35's dashboard also features a large head-up display for the head-up display. When the system detects that the pilot is looking through this indicator, some of the duplicate information from the helmet visor disappears.
