Abstract:

During the past two years, human performance has been investigated within two generic system contexts--manually controlled antiaircraft artillery against high performance aircraft and air-to-air combat in air superiority fighters. The broad objective of this research was to assess the effectiveness of proposed air weapon systems, combat strategies, and countermeasures techniques. In meeting these objectives, it was necessary to address many problems associated with the use of human operator performance data. This paper describes six problem areas considered relevant for this workshop system versus operator effectiveness, performance feedback, attrition modeling, stress tolerance, human operator identification, and system simulation.
