Abstract : The Computer-Aided Design and Evaluation Techniques (CADET) program was initiated to identify and evaluate computer techniques that might be used in the design and evaluation of crew systems. Recommendations for future expansion and development of such techniques by the Flight Dynamics Laboratory (FDL) of the AF Wright Aeronautical Laboratories are included. The original intent was to select those techniques that were compatible to computer hardware currently available at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Subsequent information indicated that future computer capacity made this constraint unnecessary. Existing techniques identified as having potential to augment FDL's flight station design methodology include a cad system, COMBIMAN, HOS, PLAID, SAINT, and WAM.
