Abstract:

Eye movement data from the 21 maneuvers flown during the tactical utility helicopter information transfer study were analyzed to determine the scanning patterns, link value, dwell times and dwell fractions. These data and data from the major eye movement studies conducted since 1944 are presented in the same numerical format. The dwell fractions and mean dwell times for similar maneuvers are compared and the link diagrams for these maneuvers are given when the data was available. The aircraft which were flown or simulated in these studies include the U. S. Navy NH-1 Howard DGA-15, PBY-5-A, and A-4 the U.S. Air Force C-45, T-33, and F-102 the U.S. Army UH-1B the Boeing 707, the McDonnell-Douglas DC-8, and the Lockheed L-188.
