This report describes the development of a reliable, objective, and quantitative set of metrics for measuring and assessing aircrew coordination in terms of aviator performance and safety. Based on a review of programs to evaluate aircrew coordination in the commercial and military sectors, three rating instruments were developed for specific application to UH-60 helicopter aircrews. These instruments included a military adaptation of the Cockpit Management Attitudes Questionnaire CMAQ, the Aircrew Coordination Evaluation Checklist, and a revised set of Aircrew Training Manual ATM maneuver standards. All three instruments were used by the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences ARI to evaluate UH-60 aircrews in May 1990 at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Data from this experiment are being analyzed by ARI and will provide a basis for developing training standards and methods in this area.
