Abstract : This document provides a synthesis of research results and literature culminating in specific human factors recommendations for Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) systems. The report concentrates on two major human factors top areas; system operability, and system implementation. System operability includes issues such as display location, crew alerting, and message formatting, etc. System implementation includes issues such as situation awareness/party line, airspace environment, mixed modality communications, etc. The findings provide a synthesis of past Data Link research and specifically address the work performed by or supported by the Technical Center's Airborne Data Link Group (ADLG) over the past several years. The goal of the Technical Center's research is to support rulemaking, certification, and the testing of air traffic control (ATC) systems in end-to-end environments.
