Abstract : The objective of the program is to define and demonstrate an appropriate display system for helicopter IFR formation flight. This report presents the results of the work that has been performed to date in the areas of human factors analysis, display design and real-time man-in-the-loop simulation. The human factors analysis was concerned primarily with the identification of the pilot's information and control requirements when flying the formation flight problem under IFR conditions. The display design task was directed toward incorporating the analytically derived information requirements into alternative display formats. During the simulation phase of the study these alternative display formats are being 'optimized' and will be ultimately compared for both normal and degraded modes of system operation. (Author)
