Abstract:

This study reviewed and analyzed the research literature relating to electronically and optically generated aircraft displays. The purpose was to provide background information to support standardization of such displays for military aircraft. The scope of the inquiry was limited to vertical and horizontal situation displays, either of the direct view or projected head-up type, used by the pilot for aircraft and mission control. The results have been set forth under three major headings Information requirements - a synthesis of 16 system studies and 11 current display designs to determine the basic information content necessary for general flight and certain special missions, Symbology - an evaluation of research findings dealing with static and dynamic symbol characteristics and display format, and Display characteristics - a delineation of optimum visual characteristics of displays in relation to the conditions of use and the techniques of image generation. The report also contains an extensive bibliography and specific recommendations for additional research.
