As the complexity and sophistication of military aviation operations rise, the effective interaction and display of map information becomes increasingly important. The purpose of this thesis is to provide a background and directions for those developing new technology in the area of air navigation and to propose a conceptual design of a Map Interactive System MIS for military aircraft cockpits. The MIS is an air navigation system that will provide pilots with map displays both on the ground and in the cockpit. Map displays will allow a pilot to view the surrounding environment along the desired route of travel using multiple perspectives. The system will be designed so a pilot may interact with the display, and send and receive vital information while in flight. It will be an amalgamation of current and future technology. The primary purpose of the MIS is to verify a pilots location and lead himher to the mission target. KAR
