Abstract:

A study program to evaluate the application of the AIDS concept to the A-7E as well as a future tactical aircraft has been completed. The study evaluated the physical characteristics of the AIDS as applied to the A-7E and selected the Type A VSTOL as the future tactical aircraft to evaluate physical compatibility, interface requirements, display format analysis, cockpit ambient lighting, and unique display system requirements associated with the VSTOL application. The study results reported in this document verify the feasibility of utilizing the integrated display concept in the A-7E aircraft as well as the type A VSTOL. Certain physical incompatibilities were noted for the VSTOL application with regard to component sizes, and several unique display requirements are identified relative to V-mode operations. Author
