Abstract:

This study was conducted for the FAA to develop flight status monitor concepts. Previous studies of crew alerting systems suggested the concept of a flight status monitor FSM, which could monitor a flight, alert the crew to abnormal operations as well as aircraft system failures, and guide the crew through the appropriate response-action procedures. Major Phase I activities include 1 Reviewing the results of Phase IV of the Aircraft Alerting System Standardization Study to identify the requirements for expanding the alerting system into an FSM. 2 Developing preliminary FSM candidate concepts and identifying design issues relating to concept implementation. 3 Performing a literature review to obtain data for answering design questions. 4 Developing realistic demonstration scenarios, based upon previous accidentsincidents, to provide a mechanism for evaluating the candidate concepts. 5 Implementing the FSM concepts and demonstration scenarios in a flight deck simulator for concept demonstrationevaluation. 6 Conducting demonstrations and developing a questionnaire to solicit pilot commentsopinions for refining the candidate concepts and to provide data for resolving FSM implementation issues. Originator-supplied keywords include Caution and warning, Warning systems, Flight monitor, Human factors, Voice control, and Touch panel.
