BAE Systems Q-HUD
This is a space model of a potential overhead Q-HUD unit; the design is very compact. The initial demonstrators used the Digital Light Engine with a green laser illumination, but it was obvious that the pilot and engineering support community were not happy with the idea of a laser despite the safety interlocks that would be incorporated. So, it was fortuitous that the commercial lighting market had forced the pace of LED development.
