Abstract : The report is devoted to the determination of how multi-sensory cues can be simulated and effectively used in the training of pilots. An analytical basis and cue taxonomy is developed and cues are postulated on the basis of information gained from the outside visual world, from sounds generated by the aircraft, and from cues resulting from aircraft motion and control movements. Description and measurement of the physical characteristics of the postulated cues are emphasized. Hypotheses are developed based upon the effects of postulated cues as they both function independently and interact with cues in other modalities. Experimentation is recommended which will lead to verification or modification of cue postulations. (Author)
