    This paper presents an illustrative application of a theory for manual control displays to the instrument landing approach of a large subsonic jet transport. A methodical procedure is disclosed for formulation of compensatory display-control systems. Manual approach height and lateral position control are treated in multiloop dynamic analyses so as to select preferred variables for measurement and... View full abstract»

    Human pilot adaptation in a simulated multiloop VTOL hovering task was investigated with a series-loop-closure model. Using the model equations, the pilot-model adaptable parameters were computed from rms hovering performance data measured in flight simulator experiments for a variety of VTOL aircraft configurations. Variations in the aircraft configurations affected both the aircraft's dynamic ch... View full abstract»

    The human operator's use of roll-motion cues is investigated for man-vehicle control in a compensatory tracking task with a disturbance input. Extensive data for the human operator's describing function are taken for a wide range of vehicle dynamics under conditions of visual cues only, roll-motion cues only, and simultaneous visual and roll-motion cues. Addition of roll-motion cues to visual cues... View full abstract»

    A series of experiments was conducted to determine the information processing rates of several subjects performing one- and two-axis compensatory tracking tasks with a secondary auditory task. The experimental variables were the order of controlled element dynamics, the forcing function, and the addition of a secondary task. Human information processing rates decreased slightly on each tracking ch... View full abstract»

  • Identification of Sampling Intervals in Sampled-Data Models of Human Operators

    The synthesis of sampled-data models of human controllers has been hampered by the lack of systematic procedures for estimating the sampling frequency to be used in the model. This paper presents two methods (programmed search and gradient search) for the determination of an unknown sampling frequency in closed-loop sampled-data systems. Both methods are based on, a priori knowledge of the structu... View full abstract»
