Abstract : The present study was directed at the use of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and forward looking infrared (FLIR) sensor enhancements to quantify mission performance and aircrew workload effects. Both pilots and two-place crews were employed in a simulator based air-to-ground mission context. Results show significant performance and workload effects across the various system test conditions and between the single- and two-place crews. For example, performance scores revealed an average 15 percent improvement for the two-place crew, with an average 20 percent reduction in subjective workload rating. (Author)
