Abstract : Among the research outputs were (1) a head-up display literature search and analysis, and (2) experimental design for dynamic (open-loop) study of moving tape scale variables. Among the continuing research tasks were: (1) visual requirements in cockpit displays under low ambient illumination, (2) switch type and location evaluation for control yoke, (3) V/STOL landing display literature search, and (4) Control-Display Information Center subjective index development. Additionally, the more extensive consulting tasks included: (1) V/STOL program development, (2) advanced multipurpose spacecraft display study, (3) V/STOL panel and cockpit mockup support, and (4) electroluminescent altimeter design concept evaluation.
