Abstract : An investigation of the influence of low-altitude high-speed flight conditions on inflight operator performance of surveillance-centered tasks is reported. Six Army pilots and four Army observers ''flew'' approximately 278 hours on simulated three-hour missions involving five RMS gust intensity levels and two airspeeds. The flights were made in a moving-base simulator that had a total travel of approximately 12 feet, an acceleration capability of = 6 G, a functional control system, and an associated analog computer for obtaining solutions to equations of motion of a mechanized aircraft. Data were analyzed in terms of human performance aspects of the missions.
