Abstract : Validation of a model-based methodology for the design and evaluation of advanced cockpit information-display systems is undertaken. The technique is applied to determine information and display requirements in an A10 terrain-following flying task. Four candidate display systems, including a flight director system, are proposed and rank-ordered across dimensions of workload and performance. Validation of the analytical predictions is accomplished through man-in-the-loop simulation experiments. It is concluded that the methodology, which can determine the limit information to the best quantities needed by the pilot to perform effectively, can be a valuable tool in the development of advanced cockpit information systems.
