Abstract : A five-year program of human factors research on carrier landing performance is summarized. Empirical measures of day and night final approach to landing were recorded and used to describe differences in landing performance across a wide variety of aircraft, ship, pilot, LSO and environmental conditions. The empirical data were used to develop carrier landing performance criteria which were applied to evaluate and assess the relative influence of system components on carrier landing system effectiveness. Carrier landing accident data for 1965-1970 are briefly reviewed and referenced. Studies covering the prediction of touchdown performance from approach data and pilot night landing proficiency from training measures are also summarized. A listing of all technical reports published during the research program is provided. (Author)
