This paper reviews some human factors research issues, the resolution of which will be vital to the successful operations of future military helicopters. The Aeromechanics Laboratory is contributing to the overall effort of understanding and reducing the helicopter pilots workload by engaging in a diverse program directed at answering some of the more fundamental questions relating to the transfer of information between man and machine. Primary issues involve the integration of controls and displays and interactions between pilot and automated systems. The results of three experimental studies address the issues of display-control compatibility, characteristics of integrated controllers, and voice systems.
