Abstract:

The Programmable Cockpit is a low-cost facility to be used for study and development of the aircrew-vehicle interface for future aircraft systems. It was designed so that instrument layouts and display formats could be reconfigured rapidly and tested in a realistic aircraft representation or emulation, with the pilot under representative workload conditions. It is not intended to be used for pilot training andor evaluation. It uses personal computers and computer graphics workstations linked together to represent the aircraft displays, and includes representative flight dynamic models for fixed-wing aircraft. Controls include a sidestick, rudder pedals, throttle, and touch sensitive screens. Cockpit simulators, Dynamic models, Cockpit displays, User interface, Computer graphics, Workstations.
