1. A system for verifying an operational state of a vehicle component of a movable vehicle, the system comprising:
a near-to-eye (NTE) display system that includes an NTE tracking controller and a display;
a management system;
a controller communicatively coupled to the NTE tracking controller and the management system; and
a tangible, non-transitory, component database communicatively coupled to the controller, the component database having stored component data for a plurality of operational states of the vehicle component, each of the plurality of operational states associated with one of a plurality of different operational phases of the movable vehicle;
the controller configured to query the management system to determine an actual operational phase of the movable vehicle;
the controller configured to receive, from the component database, the stored component data for the one of the plurality of operational states associated with the actual operational phase of the movable vehicle;
the controller configured to receive, from the NTE display system, actual component data for an actual operational state of the vehicle component based upon focus data of an operator;
the controller configured to compare the actual component data to the stored component data for the one of the plurality of operational states; and
the controller configured to control the display to output visual information based on the comparison of the actual component data and the stored component data.
