Abstract:

A hybrid simulation of an F4 aircraft was developed for the purpose of evaluating display concepts and human operator techniques and capabilities in manual energy management. Time savings in achieving energy gains with the aids provided as compared with Flight Manual methods and reduction in pilot workloads were measured. Maximum-range prediction and minimum-time intercept, as elements of an energy management system, were investigated. Several approaches to inflight calibration were studied. Benefits of optimal fuel estimation by means of Kalman filtering and by linear blending of fuel flow and fuel quantity measurements were determined. Author
