Abstract:

The report describes an experimental program designed to obtain baseline cockpit illumination data using three types of electroluminescent display lighting. A series of three in-flight experiments was flown in a T-39 aircraft by highly experienced USAF pilots. The mission profiles were designed to simulate different types of operational flights by progressively increasing the external visual task loading on the pilot. Both objective measurements and pilot opinion data were obtained on display illumination under external ambient illumination ranging from twilight to night no-moon conditions. Author
