Abstract : Human factors and engineering design data was developed which permit evaluation of electroluminescent (EL) displays for use in the aircraft cockpit. Display techniques have attempted to allow comfortable readability and useful operating lifetimes under ambient illumination conditions from darkness to 10,000 foot-candles. This was accomplished by a simulator study of state-of-the-art EL displays, followed by design and construction of improved displays in keeping with legibility requirements. (Author)
