Abstract:

Physiological Psychology has always been the scientific approach most likely to provide in aircraft design the alleviation of environmental stress, the design of protective equipment, the planning of optimal cycles at work and rest, as well as the solution of many special problems relating to seats, lighting systems, safety devices, etc. With the dramatic conceptual changes intervening in aerospace, all performance measurements should indicate the manner in which the human is responding in order to allow the interpretation of data obtained in laboratory conditions. The AGARDograph is a general survey of existing capabilities of, as well as the possible contributions to be made by, psychophysiological measurements techniques in applied settings.
