Honeywell 360 Display to Provide Vehicle Operators with Greatly Enhanced Situational Awareness

Honeywell 360 Display to Provide Vehicle Operators with Greatly Enhanced Situational Awareness

The wearable display provides seamless situational awareness for rugged ground vehicle operators and pilots in low-visibility conditions.

PHOENIX, Oct. 10, 2022 – Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON) today introduced the Honeywell 360 Display, a head-mounted display that provides significantly enhanced situational awareness for operators of military vehicles used in hazardous conditions with reduced visibility. The Honeywell 360 Display simulates natural vision with a high-resolution, ultra-low-latency view of what is happening around the vehicle, allowing users to safely maneuver around potential risks.

The Honeywell 360 Display is a wearable, stereoscopic, mixed-reality head-mounted display that uses a series of sensors and exterior cameras to feed information directly to the headset. It improves the user’s situational awareness by increasing visibility and reducing the need to consult additional instruments. It combines outside camera feeds with sensor and tactical information to provide a 360-degree field of view that can integrate multiple databases including terrain, traffic and weather. The lightweight Honeywell 360 Display has been designed for comfortable, extended use, and in testing has shown to not cause the type of nausea sometimes experienced in other head-mounted systems.

“The advanced situational awareness the Honeywell 360 Display provides helps enable the battlefield of the future, providing operators and pilots with real-time data to improve their reaction time and to make timely, well-informed decisions when needed most,” said Ricky Freeman, president, Defense and Space, Honeywell Aerospace. “This focus on innovation and user experience reflects our commitment to modernize defense capabilities and improve the safety of the men and women who use this equipment.”

For operators of ground vehicles often used in challenging environments, the Honeywell 360 Display improves overall situational awareness and reaction speed by increasing visibility and reducing the need to consult fixed displays. Operators can use the lightweight helmet-mounted display to combine a seamless real-time, mixed-reality outside view with critical sensor augmentation.

The Honeywell 360 Display has been tested extensively on ground vehicles, including in rough terrain. Future applications of the technology may include use in aircraft, to provide the capability of a heads-up display (HUD) in wearable form. The 360 Display includes a wearable visor or helmet-mounted display that uses augmented reality to provide civilian or military pilots with a high-resolution 360-degree view of terrain and visual cues outside the cockpit.
