Abstract : The unique performance characteristics of the advanced STOL and V/STOL aircraft require a review and analysis of the cockpit, display, and control design requirements. The report presents an analysis resulting in requirements based upon detailed descriptions of a new STOL and V/Stol tactical transport operating in a severe tactical environment. Each item established as a cockpit requirement is the result of a traceable line of development that starts with the new airplane operating requirements and proceeds in directions determined by the capabilities of both hardware and humans. The end product of this analysis is a definition of cockpit display and control requirements based on the new operational needs rather than following the general tendency to use conventional cockpit displays and controls in new aircraft.
