Abstract:

Pilot workload saturation in the cockpit of US Navy Aircraft has become a serious concern. Literature, studies, and flight tests indicate that utilizing a voice interactive system for certain cockpit tasks can reduce this workload by decreasing the time required to perform the task. This being the case, the problem which remains is one of deciding which tasks to convert. Therefore, a model has been developed which provides the designer with a total systems approach for use in deciding what combination of tasks, which if converted for performance by the voice interactive system, will result in the greatest workload reduction without overloading the pilots voice channels.
