ABSTRACT

Aircrew Performance: Cutting-Edge Technology   [open pdf - 591KB]

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines "technology" as applied science; also as a technical method for achieving a practical purpose. This paper will present a description of emerging/cutting-edge human factors technology, and put forth the methods to achieve them. Emerging human factors areas addressed in this paper will include fatigue, vision enhancement, NBC/DEW threats, mishap reduction, as well as more nebulous areas of culture, situational awareness, spatial disorientation, simulators,and training. It is hoped that this vision will focus technological direction, so that the advances may be incorporated more rapidly into operational aviation combat systems.
