Abstract:

The design of a new severely upgraded aircraft cockpit requires many design decisions to be made, at least tentatively, prior to any opportunities for generation of detailed design specifications and experimentation with prototypes. In considering issues of interface design and function allocation, it is important to develop predictions concerning the effects of the various design alternatives on pilot performance. Task network models and workload estimation techniques are typically used jointly to accomplish this goal. The work described here was conducted in order to refine type of analysis and prediction technique as part of the U.S. Navys Advanced Tactical Cockpit ATC Pilot-Vehicle Interface PVI Program.
