Abstract:

This report describes a study undertaken to identify tasks required of Army aviators performing terrain flight, and to determine the ways in which a computer-generated topographic display might aid in the conduct of these tasks. The report provides a an inventory of the full range of preflight and inflight tasks performed by the Army aviator that require the use of map products, overlays, and geographic data b a review of the recent developments and state-of-the-art in computer graphics technology that are applicable to the production of map products and related displays and c descriptions of computer-graphic capabilities that have potential value for the conduct of flight planning, the conduct of navigation, and the accomplishment of related tasks.
