Abstract:

In the development of an effective pilot-vehicle interface PVI, a variety of configurations must be evaluated in an operational context. General Dynamics is performing this iterative process with the aid of the Research and Engineering Simulator. The in-house evaluations resulted in two display mechanization concepts for the multipurpose displays which were evaluated by the AFTIF-16 program pilots in the simulator. The primary objective of the multipurpose display MPD evaluation was to assess the effectiveness of two alternative display mechanizations. A secondary objective of this test was to conduct a preliminary evaluation of the individual display formats. Data obtained during the evaluation was used to assess pilot acceptance of the AFTIF-16 cockpit and to develop display formats and mechanization concepts that improve operational utility.
