Integrated Computer-Generated Cockpit Displays
In the new generation of high-speed, multi-mission aircraft the role of the pilot has changed substantially. New system elements typically require the man to be an information manager or a fast decision maker as opposed to a direct controller of flight variables. Adjustment to the new demands has been greatly assisted by innovations in display and control technology and the inclusion of advanced computers on board. These innovations have increased the degrees of freedom in function allocation and display and control system design. Yet, to capitalize on these opportunities, further improvements in sensing and display are necessary for a wise use of these additional degrees of freedom.
