Abstract : Six absolute altimeter display designs were evaluated in the static mode. Performance was measured with respect to subjects' reading accuracy, speed and preference. The subjects consisted of experienced Army aviators and non-flying college students. The results showed a significant difference between display types as well as between aviators and students.
