A 14-month program is described which culminated in fabrication and limited flight tests of a cockpit meter instrumentation system displaying aircraft specific energy and energy rate specific excess power. Detailed account is given of the analysis and design processes, including man-in-the-loop hybrid simulation and display, through which the meter and its uses were developed. Preliminary flight test results are also cited.
