Abstract : An analytical study was conducted to define an avionics system concept for a U.S. Coast Guard multimission fixed-wing twin-engine aircraft. The system requirements were compiled from a previous concept definition study done under this contract for a search and rescue helicopter and from analysis of mission scenarios fitted to the unique USCG missions. The study tasks included development of representative mission scenarios, avionics and sensor package selection, man/machine function allocation, workload analysis and simulation, aircraft ride qualities and crew visibility analyses, and definition of a recommended cockpit configuration and sensor installation.
