Abstract : This article presents a discussion of the principle current Army requirement for research and methodology development in pilot and aircrew workload measurement. Emphasis is given to the shifting impact of operator task demands and to the utility value of workload methodology in guiding design and development activities. The discussion focuses on requirements which are especially acute in the system acquisition process involving development of new helicopter crew stations. Conclusions and opinions offered by the writer suggest both a conceptual orientation and a general approach to meeting the requirements. (Author)
