Abstract:

The primary objective of this study was to acquire subjective information on the ability of pilots to perceptually differentiate between selected conditions of motion cueing in the Simulator for Air-to-Air Combat SAAC. A second objective was to prepare the initial framework for follow-on studies designed to determine the contributions of motion cueing to pilot performance and training in the SAAC. Four high experience F-4 pilots and four low experience F-4 pilots flew six contact maneuvers in the SAAC under eight experimental conditions of platform motion, G-seat, and G-suit. Subjective ratings were collected from the pilots on the effectiveness of the motion-cueing systems after the completion of each maneuver. The results indicated that the pilots could discriminate changes in G-suit performance via the ratings. However, no differences in the pilot ratings were elicited by changes in the G-seat or platform motion system operation. Author
