Abstract:

This report is one of a series of documented studies directed to the improvement and standardization of aircraft alerting systems. The purpose of the study was to develop and validate, through simulation, functional design criteria that can be used in designing effective aircraft alerting systems. The major objectives of this phase of the study were to resolve system component questions validate the two candidate systemconcepts by comparison to a representative baseline system, for both the pilot and flight engineer stations evaluate presentation media and display formats for time-critical warnings and develop guidelines for the design of alerting systems. This document presents a set of design guidelines directed to the improvement and standardization of aircraft alerting systems. The objective of the guidelines is not to define a simple hardware design that each manufacturer must use, but rather to provide functional design criteria that can be used to develop effective alerting systems, and to promote standardization within the industry.
