A part task simulation study was performed to determine the ability of pilots to land an aircraft using head up display (HUD) guidance symbology overlaying an emulated millimeter wave imagery. The task was to land in Category IIIa weather at a Category I facility. Three image parameters were varied: image update rate, image processing latency, and the luminance contrast ratio of the runway image to the background noise. ILS beam bending that was representative of a Category I facility was randomly varied across the experimental runs. Nine pilots completed the test matrix. The only variable that made a significant difference was the runway to background contrast ratio
