Abstract : Manual controllability of a six-degree-of-free dom vehicle was invted. Study, analysis, and experimental testing were used to demonstrate controllability and to determine requirements for control inputs, information display, and con trol coupling (and decoupling) when the vehicle is a tandem-propeller submarine. A control station mockup, including a six-degree-of-freeddom input control and a contact analog display (with quickened perspective tracking symbol), was com bined with an analog computer simulation of a tendem-propeller submarine to provide real-time tests of controllability performance using naive male subjects.
