Abstract : This paper presents SRI's current capability for gathering both aircraft and armament performance data and simultaneous pilot physiological response data. It also explores the potential near-future expansion of this capability. Section II describes SRI's aircraft and pilot instrumentation systems. Section III outlines current performance measurement capabilities, and Section IV describes the expanded measurements that will be possible in the near future. Finally, Section V summarizes the advantages of SRI's multidimensional approach.
