The design for a civil QHUD™ installation was shown at the National Business Aviation Association Convention (NBAA) in Orlando, Florida in October 2008. This unit utilised a basic two-part waveguide to provide a Combiner viewing area of approximately 6x6 inches. This solution was termed a “slab/slab” design in that it utilised two separate waveguide elements, externally coupled, to expand the horizontal and vertical axes independently. The optical efficiency of this design was very poor, and it was necessary to use a commercially available frequency doubled NdYag laser as the illumination source.
Length of cables approx. 4m.
