Abstract : The Integrated Mission Precision Attack Cockpit Technology (IMPACT) Program focuses on the analysis, design, and test of cockpit control and display concepts for a single seat, multi-role fighter performing precision strike missions against mobile and fixed targets, at night and in adverse weather. This report details the results of the first 'Role Playing' Exercise. This was an exploratory evaluation assessing: (1) pilot workload associated with an Air Interdiction mission in a single seat fighter; and (2) advanced technologies having the potential to reduce work-load and increase mission effectiveness. Subjective workload measures were collected for a baseline F-15E, conceptual single-seat F-15E, and an Advanced Technology Cockpit (ATC) using the Subjective Workload Assessment Technique (SWAT) and Subjective Workload Dominance (SWORD) technique. Advanced technologies, assumed to be in use in the year 2005, and their possible mechanizations, were rated using questionnaires and interviews. This report describes the role playing methodology and the test results. (AN)
