The pilot views the outside world through the Combiner Glass and the HUD optical relay superimposes the symbology 1:1 with the outside world. This Combiner has a neutral density coating giving a nominal 70% transmission and 30% reflection. The curved support structure is designed to protect the pilot if a bird strike deforms the polycarbonate canopy and the Combiner glass itself is designed and tested such that if it does shatter and does not harm the pilot.
