Abstract : The project has been concerned with prediction and adaptation in control of systems such as military aircraft. The processes were explored in human operators, in adaptive displays for the human operator and in a means for coupling manual with automatic control. The latter development, termed 'automanual control' was mechanized and tested in the laboratory. Automanual control with a predictor instrument proved superior to four other modes of control to which it was compared. (Author)
