Abstract : Control-display problems in terminal area navigation and zero visibility landing are identified along with related considerations for control laws and computations and requirements for sensors. Test and development program plans for research, development, and testing of controls and displays for full use of the capabilities of the microwave landing system are presented. Criteria and measurements for development and testing controls and displays are discussed. Procedures for evaluation of system performance, pilot performance, pilot acceptance, and safety are included. Alternative techniques for measuring pilot workload are outlined. Coordinated use of theoretical analysis, simulation, and flight test for development and testing of control-display systems is discussed. (Author Modified Abstract)
