Abstract:

The project was initiated to explore the modern nature of minimum flying qualities in the presence of modern aircraft and multi-redundant flight control system technology. It had several phases, including 1 an intensive effort to develop andor elaborate existing pilot modeling analysis techniques to apply to situations associated with minimum flying qualities, divided attention pilot operations, and multi-axis control tasks 2 preliminary analyses and associated fixed base simulations to expand the meager multi-axis data base and to serve as pilot studies for more extensive simulations on the Air Forces Large Amplitude Multimode Aerospace Research Simulator 3 an extensive simulation program on LAMARS to investigate minimum flying qualities and related situations and 4 analysis and interpretation of both the early and LAMARS simulation efforts in the context of the pilot modeling advances. The project documentation appears in three volumes. Volume I reports on the results of 2 through 4 above. Volume II is a stand-alone monograph on pilot modeling, including procedures for estimating pilot workload as measured by pilot ratings. This volume is a stand-alone monograph which presents a detailed implementation of a much expanded version of the human optimal control model on Program CC.
