The purpose is to determine helicopter-manmachine system interaction to containership motion. By using several different displaycontrol systems, the positioning capabilities of the helicopter when placing loads in a containership held was determined. The effort was in support of the Heavy Lift Helicopter program sponsored by the US Army Combat Developments Command Aviation Agency, Fort Rucker, Alabama. Author
