Abstract:

This project was conducted to design, fabricate, test, and recommend design criteria for air traffic control tower cab consoles. Considerations were given to human factor aspects to ensure that the console design would provide ease of coordination, economy of motion, and accessibility of controls and displays for the controllers. Supplementary areas of investigation included tower cab light systems, controller chairs, and a recently developed interphone keying system. Recommendations include specifications for a highly versatile tower console of modular design, tower cab illumination criteria, a scientifically designed work station chair, and details on a compact, modular interphone keying system.
