Abstract:

The purpose of this document is to provide human factors specialists and certification authorities with a consolidated set of tailored guidelines that can be employed to evaluate the designs of actual or proposed airborne Data Link systems. The guidelines deal with the human factors aspects of the pilots interface, particularly those affecting the design of the computer software, and displaycontrol hardware comprising such systems. The guidelines were compiled from a number of recognized sources that have been successfully employed by human factors practitioners to design and assess computer-human interfaces in recent years. Guidelines for interface software were derived primarily from those developed by Smith and Mosier 1986. Guidelines for the physical design of displaycontrol hardware were obtained, to a large extent, from MIL-STD-1472D 1989, which is often cited in government procurement contracts.
