The Air Force Human Resources Laboratory AFHRL has the responsibility for research and development of advanced simulation techniques, including motion and force cueing requirements and techniques. This report is a summary of the efforts currently underway at AFHRL under Projects 6114 and 1958 which are directed at advanced tactical aircraft simulation. The approach being pursued is two-fold the first part includes efforts directed towards building a data base for use in developing cueing requirements the second part includes efforts to improve the performance of existing devices that have been shown to be somewhat effective and to develop new devices and techniques as indicated by the data base efforts. Exploratory efforts including the development of a composite sensory model, the design of high-g augmentation devices, the development of a myoelectric feedback display dimming technique and the collection of g-cue environment data are discussed. An advanced development effort, the advanced g-cueing system including g-seat, g-suit, and seat shaker , is highlighted.
