Abstract:

Lack of ability to implement instrumentation and display systems which would better fit mans requirements caused ANIP to conduct research in many areas for basic information and for application of information already at hand. These areas included computer theory and implementation, materials, display devices, sensors, feasibility, human factors and systems analysis. Feasibility studies included one fixed-wind flyable system and two rotary-wing systems. Laboratory facilities are used for human factors and system research, evaluation and demonstration. Results of the program are breakthroughs in human factors requirements for display content, display design and implementation, materials and their relation to electromagnetic phenomena, display devices, computer theory and construction advances, and inertial sensor conceptual evaluation which has produced a new concept having unusually high practical application potential. All other results are overshadowed by proof that the man-machine system and requirements approach coupled with research allocated to problem areas on a priority basis can yield systems of superior performance in minimum cost and time.
