Abstract : This report summarizes work which was accomplished during the first phase of evaluation of the JANAIR vertical display. The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy with which altitude and groundspeed could be interpreted from the existing display. The display presentation was 'open loop', i.e., no control task was required of the experimental subjects. Pertinent applied maneuver variables were presented. These included heading, groundspeed, rate of turn, vertical speed and altitude. The influence of the test variables are discussed. Recommendations are made for use and redesign of this type of display. (Author)
