This report describes the work performed by MacAulay-Brown, Inc. MacB to support the Armstrong Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory AAMRL pilot-Centric Design Methodology and Concepts PDMC Program. The PDMC Program was established to respond to the need for operator-centered crew stations. The conceptual development of virtual-world technologies, providing a spatial coupling to the visual, aural, and tactile senses, was emphasized during the program. This report details studies, analyses, simulations, and hardware software prototype evaluations performed by MacB and various subcontracted personnel, in order to develop measurements and models of human performance in tactical andor strategic environments. In addition, the report describes assessments of state-of-the-art humanmachine subsystems relating to pilot- centered cockpit interfaces and various conceptual and hardwaresoftware development efforts conducted within the PDMC program. Auditory signals, Cockpits, Display, Man-computer interface, Performance, Visual signals.
