Abstract:

As part of an overall research program to develop both forward- looking and downward-looking tactical situation displays for all-weather instrument flight in VTOLs, an integrated horizontal situation display was developed for both vertical and translational flight. This report covers the development and initial experimentation of the downward-looking display and control system. The effects of eight factors on pilot performance as a function of those eight factors were derived for each of three dependent performance measures. Author
