Abstract:

The work accomplished to date includes the following 1 A detail definition of the characteristics of the control systems to be studied 2 the design and fabrication of a complex of experimental equipment which will permit the research to be implemented 3 performance criteria particularly suited to evaluating manual control capability for tasks with limited time constraints have been generated and 4 an experimental program which will permit the systematic inclusion of all of the variables which affect control performance has been established in detail. The completion of this research will provide a sound basis for appropriately applying prediction concepts to specific aircraft maneuver tasks, incorporating prediction information in existing cockpit displays, and generating new displays to handle prediction data.
