Abstract : The U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Human Research and Engineering Directorate (ARL-HRED) conducts human figure modeling to design and test Army systems. The modeling has been used to assess and improve the ergonomic design and usability of all modernized Army Aviation systems, as well as to reduce analysis and development timelines. ARL-HRED has also developed a digital library of Army Aviation aircraft and equipment to assess whether or not the aircraft and equipment meet human factors engineering design standards. The modeling conducted by ARL-HRED has resulted in numerous system design improvements to meet the human factors engineering design standards. Human figure modeling will continue to play an increasingly important role in the future, as Army Aviation program managers work to develop effective systems, minimize design costs, and shorten design, development, and production timelines.
