Test Report for the Internal/External Temperature Heads-Up Display


The operational field assessment of the Thermal Heads-Up Display (HUD) prototype, developed by Ultra Electronics – USSI, occurred on April 30, 2013, at the New York City Fire Academy on Randall’s Island with participation from the New York City Fire Department. Four firefighters with various levels of training in hazardous materials (hazmat) were led by Hazmat Battalion Chief Edward Bergamini.

The firefighter participants executed an operational training scenario in which they were required to fix a simulated leak of a 1-ton chlorine cylinder. This task required participants to don a Level-A hazmat suit and the Thermal HUD. The task was conducted in a training shed where the inside temperature was set to 92 degrees Fahrenheit to allow the prototype and participants to experience preset alarm triggering levels.
