Abstract:

ARI, Ft. Hood, TX, conducted the human factors evaluation of the preproduction Advanced Development Model of the SINCGARS-V receivertransmitter RT. The evaluation was part of the Maturity Operational Test of the system conducted by OTEA at Ft. Riley, KS, September - December 1983. The RT was found to have numerous human factors problems. The most notable were in the areas of the complexity of operational procedures, the physical design of the control panel, the inadequacy of the cue function, system documentation, and the excessive training requirement. The report includes suggestions for hardware and software design changes and stresses the necessity for operational simplification.
