Abstract:

A quantitative, simulation-based system evaluation of the Instrument Formation Flight System for Helicopters IFFSH was conducted at the Tactical Avionics System Simulator TASS Facility, Fort Monmouth. This program was directed to the task of measuring the capabilities of the IFFSH and used a manned real-time simulation of the UH-1C aircraft and the IFFSH display and controls to determine the significant variables of formation flight that pertain to the system. This volume of the report contains the TASS experiment design plan for the evaluation and a summary of the entire program from its initiation. The second volume of the report is Technical Report ECOM C-0387-F3, Development of Hybrid Computer Programs for Simulation of an Instrument Formation Flight System for Helicopters U, June 1968, prepared under contract DAAB07-68-C-0387.
