Abstract:

Since 1998, The Aircraft Crewstation Demonstrator ACD has provided the opportunity for scientists and practitioners to review interface designs in a dynamic setting with the human-in-the-loop. This document serves as a reference for the software developed to support the CF-18 ACD that resides at DCTEM. The ACD has a very modular architecture, which allows for components to be added and removed over time. As such, the ACD is best described in terms of its individual components. The modular nature of the ACD, combined with the physical separation of the software components across several computers, makes interprocess communication of central importance to the software architecture. As such this document gives a comprehensive view of the interprocess communication that occurs during the running of the ACD, before treating each component in depth. This document is current as of January 17, 2002. It is anticipated that as other components are added to the CF-18 ACD, this reference document will also need to be updated.
