In 1969, by specifically including pilotage error in the error budget for area navigation system certification, the Federal Aviation Administration legally attached economic premiums and penalties to human as well as equipment performance in man-machine system design. To establish the accuracy of use and freedom from pilot blunders associated with systems employing various configurations of displays and controls requires both simulator and flight experimentation. An automatically adaptive cockpit side task provides a saturing level of pilot workload and allows the sensitive, orderly, and statistically reliable measurement of a pilots residual attention as a common metric for area navigation system assessment.
