This report documents the second phase of a two-phase effort called the Tanker AvionicsAircrew Complement Evaluation TAACE Program. The results obtained from a full mission simulation of an updated avionics configuration for the KC-135 tanker are reported herein. These results concern the development of the crew station avionics criteria to be met for a 3-man crew complement pilot, copilot, boom operator completing all KC-135 mission requirements without compromise to either mission performance or aircraft operational safety. This volume is divided into three sections. Section I - Introduction Section II - providing sketches of the crew system design layout and Section III - providing operational systems descriptions of the Navigation Management System and the Horizontal Situation Display are extensive and therefore are presented separately in Appendixes A and B.
