Abstract : The Bunker-Ramo program of human engineering tasks may be characterized as broad in scope and covering a diverse collection of control-display problems. Technical activities included consultation, participation as members of control-display system teams, reviews and analyses of specific control-display problem literature, development and study of methodological problems, experimentation and development of human engineering methods, and evaluation of controls and displays. The objectives of the individual tasks and their nature are briefly reviewed and discussed in this report. References are made to Technical Reports pertinent to the completion of each of the tasks. Individual reports, however, are not included as a part of this Summary Final Report. Among the most significant human engineering contributions were those concerned with the development of solid state (electroluminescent) display concepts, V/STOL and Multi-Jet Transport control-display configurational work, the determination of scale factors critical to tape information display, evaluation of the photochromic display, simulator evaluation of a side stick controller, inflight evaluation of force wheel steering in the heavy transport aircraft, a preliminary evaluation of a microvision display and an assessment of the state-of-the-art with respect to attitude indicators.
