Abstract:

This report describes two field studies which tested pilots abilities to maintain hover control of a helicopter when the visual field was restricted and when referents were specified. Two laboratory studies are also described which tested observers abilities to detect small displacements in one of a pair of stimulus dots on a CRT display and displacements of real-world visual scenes when only the scene moved or when scene and observer were moved in the pitch dimension. Results of studies are discussed.
