    Man's participation in limited space travel is imminent. Attention must be focused now upon the nature and extent of his participation in future manned space systems. It is imperative that the human not be assigned functions as an afterthought. Rather, functions must be assigned in a manner that will optimize system performance with respect to the mission requirements. This paper describes a pract... View full abstract»

    A number of radar steering display designs utilizing the moving-airplane principle were compared with the standard Air Force moving-horizon display in a series of simulator experiments. Significant improvement in tracking performance for military pilots with and without prior fire-control experience was found for a display which incorporated rate feedback and pursuit tracking features in addition ...

    An experiment was conducted using a flight simulator to determine the relative ease with which pilots can learn to use four types of airborne fire-control system steering displays. The four displays compared were 1) a moving-horizon display with a space-stabilized error dot, 2) a moving-horizon display with an aircraft-stabilized error dot, 3) a compensatory type moving-airplane display, and 4) a ...

    The aim of this study was to improve maintenance of electronic equipment by determining what information to place on the equipment and developing techniques for its display. Trips to various communications installations were made in order to examine equipment, observe maintenance activities, examine manuals, and interview personnel. Detailed data were collected showing the marked variation between... View full abstract»

    System requirements were developed for a minimum cost and fidelity simulator appropriate for the study of driving behavior. The simulator is composed of three sub-systems: a pulse-width modulation recording and reproducing unit to provide road geometry, a vehicle dynamics computer to solve the automobile motion equations, and a cathode-ray tube display that provides a representation of the visual ...
