Abstract : The purpose of this investigation was to definitize principles of display and control suitable for remotely piloted vehicles of interest to the Navy. The immediate concern is directed toward RPV strike missions wherein an aircraft will be used to deliver conventional or laser-guided weapons to highly defined targets, recover and seek further targets, then return to friendly territory. The report includes a brief discussion of the prior research conducted pertinent to this problem by Decision Science, Inc., a general research plan for the current investigation and preliminary statements regarding the first of a series of display control experiments. A bibliography is included as well as appendices which cover detailed materials used in support of this research effort.
