Abstract : A high acceleration cockpit design test/evaluation program was conducted, using a full scale design aid. Alternate configurations were compared using this full scale design aid in a formally structured evaluation including mission related task elements. Test criteria considered evaluation of control/display and cockpit design options, including seat location, motion, and pilot anthropometry, with a balance between the physical and operational test measures and objectives using Air Force provided pilot subjects.
