There is disclosed an integrated optical design of head-up displays suitable for use in aircraft cockpits and the like. The display system is comprised of a holographic optical element used as the combiner for presenting a direct view of the exterior on which are superimposed image signals generated by a source device such as a cathode ray tube and transmitted to the combiner through an optical system including a relay lens containing tilted and decentered optical elements to compensate for the aberration present in the holographic optical element. There are further disclosed four relay lens design forms particularly suited for use in the design of such holographic head-up displays. The disclosure includes integrated designs in which (a) the holographic element may or may not be constructed with aberrated wavefront and (b) a beam splitter is incorporated for insertion of a stand-by sight, possibly also being tilted for the correction of aberrations.
