Abstract:

This report constitutes the proceedings of a workshop on Aircraft Attitude Awareness held at WPAFB, OH. 8-10 Oct 1985. The purpose of the workshop was to address the problem of loss of aircraft attitude awareness, primarily in the single-seat fighter attack aircraft, to recommend practical fixes to current operational aircraft and training measures to overcome their deficiencies, and to recommend initiatives to ensure that problems in the pilot-vehicle -interface of present aircraft be considered in the design of future aircraft, e.g., ATF. There were a number of findings and recommendations to prevent collisions with the surface, to improve displays for orientation and other critical control parameters, to improve aircraft for the enhanced night-weather role, to improve training, and to improve communications.
