Abstract:

The Human Engineering Applications Directorate HEAD is one of three directorates in the US Army Human Engineering Laboratory HEL. The HEAD is currently composed of four teams with specific expertise in aviation, missile, communication, armor, tactical data, weapons, automotive systems, and display and control. The teams serve as human factors engineering consultants to various DARCOM Project Managers. A yearly support contract scope of work is agreed upon between the directorate and the project manager being supported with specific tasks delineated for completion during the year. Important results, including design recommendations, potential problem areas, trade-offs and test results are provided to the project manager. The Applied Research Team has primary responsibility within HEAD for commandcontrol display systems. The mission of the team is to conduct applied research studies in the area of advanced display technology for the purpose of defining human factors display criteria during conceptual and validation phases of the material development process. Additional functions include providing experimental design expertise and display research support to other HEAD teams.
