Abstract:

This report documents the conclusions and recommendations of the Sub- Group for Simulation, Human Factors, and Research SHFR, of the Night Attack Workload Steering Group. This is the last of a series of reviews and study reports which examined topics pertinent to night attack pilot workload measurement. Sub-Group products have included separate reviews of prior simulation studies, simulation facility capabilities, and workload metrics. Twenty current recommendations are documented herein which will create the human factorspilot workload data base needed to support short term LANTIRN needs as well as long term needs of the night attack system development community. Work recommended ranges from small, specific studies of supporting technology such as terrain following algorithm and color displays to large pilot-in-the-loop technology integration studies which require extensive supporting simulation equipment development. Each study addressed includes recommendations for organizational assignments and facility usage. In composite the SHFR recommendations provide a comprehensive roadmap for workload data development needed to support night attack system acquisition through the 1980s.
