Abstract:

An analytical study was conducted to define the avionics system and the display and controls concept required for the HH-53C helicopter so that it could accomplish the USAFs all-weather SAR mission. The study tasks included development of an avionics concept based on a representative mission scenario, avionics and sensor package selection, a manmachine function allocation and crew workload analysis. A recommended avionics configuration was defined. The HH-53C can be upgraded by an avionics configuration, within the cost constraints, to perform the all-weather SAR mission. This upgraded HH-53C can be operated by the crew within their workload limitations.
