INVESTIGATION OF 'PREDICTOR' DISPLAYS FOR ORBITAL RENDEZVOUS, PROGRAM SUMMARY.
Final rept. Nov 63-Oct 64,

Pagination or Media Count:
A series of studies on the development of predictor display techniques for orbital rendezvous is summarized. The purpose of this program was to evaluate alternative predictive display techniques for orbital rendezvous. After an analog simulation of the rendezvous problem was mechanized and a display format developed, two studies were conducted investigating operator efficiency at control of rendezvous utilizing the side looking display format and predictor display techniques. Also, two display modifications were investigated a reduced display size and, the addition of a braking circle. The results of the initial work indicated that operator performance in manual control of rendezvous maneuvers was enhanced by predictor display techniques. The final section of the report outlines the plans for followon efforts. Author
