A high acceleration cockpit design integration program was conducted for an advanced fighter concept with direct lift and side force capabilities. Program efforts included an assessment of required cockpit controls and displays considering both functional requirements and basic pilot tasks in a fighter mission. Cockpit functional capabilities were tailored to satisfy operational needs considering the integration of an articulating ejection seat and fly-by-wire side arm controllers. Several configuration design alternatives were constructed for subsequent evaluation by USAF pilots in a static design aid evaluation phase. Modified author abstract
