Because of the increased importance of conserving aircraft instrument-panel space, vertical-scale instrument displays are being given greater consideration. In an effort to identify any potential problems associated with vertical-scale instrument displays, a human-factors evaluation was performed on the production prototype of the vertical-scale instrument display for the OV-1D. Some of the factors considered in the investigation include light distribution, spectral analysis, impact on dark adaptation, high- ambient conditions, and night-vision-goggle compatibility. Recommendations have been made with respect to the light distribution and marking sizes.
