Abstract:

These proceedings contain more than 40 papers or abstracts of presentations made at the workshop held at Edwards AFB, California on 19-21 January 1982. Section I contains overview papers on the subjects of pilot workload, pilot dynamics, and flight test requirements. Included in this section are papers describing the various mission environments encountered by advanced aircraft and design procedures used to improve pilot-vehicle performance capability. Section 2 addresses the quantification of pilot workload using measures of spare mental capability, subjective ratings and opinion, and pilot dynamics and task performance including the measurement of pilot performance, the modeling of pilot dynamics, and the collection of flight test data. General conclusions of the workshop were that workload is a multidimensional concept involving complex relationships among the pilot, the vehicle, the tasks, and the environment.
