Abstract : The report contains a description of a study to determine the information displays required by LSOs to effectively control aircraft in the Automatic Carrier Landing System environment. Dangerous and safe approaches were flown in an F-4B aircraft simulator. Displays of selected information about the aircraft's performance during the approaches were produced with a computer and recorded on motion picture film. The information displays were integrated Glide-Slope and Line-Up deviations, Range, Airspeed, Power, Angle of Attack, and Sink-Rate. Groups of LSOs viewed the different display combinations. The LSO's task was to wave-off the aircraft if he judged the approach to be dangerous. (Author)
