Abstract:

The objective was to develop a design guide for the use of color in advanced avionics displays. Study results are presented in two parts. Part I presents principles for use of color, plus supporting data where such data exist. Principles of Part I are general and can be applied in virtually any application involving color coding of display information. Part II represents the application of these principles to real-world cockpit displays. Recommended color codes are developed for application to electronic displays in fighter attack aircraft. Examples of representative display formats incorporating the recommended coding are provided.
