Abstract : The objectives of the study were to review the current philosophy and standards on the airborne applications of electronic color display systems, develop guidelines for specifying and measuring color CRT display performance parameters, conduct a survey of currently available color systems, review and evaluate existing system capabilities, and predict future trends and applications in color display systems and componentry. Partial Contents: Analysis of the Current Philosophy and Standards on the Application of Color in Electronic Display Systems (Principal Factors Determining Color Display Effectiveness; Color Display Specification, Measurement, and Calibration Techniques; Impact of the Operational Lighting Environment on Color Display Requirements; Unresolved Issues and Future Color Display Research Requirements); Survey and Evaluation of Currently Available Color Display Systems (Technical Evaluation of Hardware Characteristics and Visual Parameters; Summary Recommendations; Prediction of Future Trends and Development in Color Display Technology). Keywords: Human factors engineering; Color displays; Visual perception; and Crew station design.
