Abstract : A Controller Decision Evaluation (CODE) experiment was performed to compare a 20-inch horizontal individual display with an 8 by 10 foot Eidophor projected group display in the terminal environment. Sixteen subjects used each display for four 90-minute sessions. No significant differences between displays were found in either the number of conflictions missed or the number of unnecessary control actions taken. It was concluded that there is nothing inherent in the large common display that would preclude it from use as an air traffic control display. A discussion of a number of factors that should be considered in such a use is given. (Author)
