Open Access Stereoscopic Remote Vision System Aerial Refueling Visual Performance

The performance and comfort of aircrew using stereoscopic displays viewed at a near distance over long periods of time are now important operational factors to consider with the introduction of aerial refueling tankers using remote vision system technology. Due to concern that the current U.S. Air Force vision standards and test procedures may not be adequate for accurately identifying aircrew medically fit to operate this new technology for long mission durations, we investigated performance with the use of a simulated remote vision system and the ability of different vision tests to predict performance and reported discomfort. The results showed that the use of stereoscopic cameras generally improved performance but that individuals with poorer vision test scores performed more poorly and reported greater levels of discomfort. In general, newly developed computer-based vision tests were more predictive of both performance and reported discomfort than standard optometric tests.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
