A series of flight simulations was carried out to investigate the causal factors of attention capture, focusing on a traffic detection task while following a curved trajectory using a Tunnel-in-the-Sky display. Display location (head-up or head-down) and gain were selected as display parameters, and traffic detection time and path tracking performance were(More)
A CDTI (Cockpit Display of Traffic Information) was developed for a trajectory-based operations concept for small aircraft. The CDTI presents not only the positions of other aircraft but also their trajectories, estimated CPA (Closest Point of Approach) in the case of a conflict, and other related information. Pilot acceptance of the CDTI was evaluated by(More)
A helicopter hover guidance display that uses perspective objects was developed and evaluated by flight and simulator experiments. The display presents the pilot with the position of the helicopter on a horizontal situation (Map) display as well as on the FD (flight director) of a PFD (primary flight display). Several flight experiments using JAXA's(More)
Pilots flying with synthetic vision systems with integrated attitude indicators sometimes report degraded attitude awareness. It is suspected that the opposite motions of the projected flight path and bank pointer can reduce a pilot's attitude awareness, and even provide a false cue. A variety of bank angle indicators were compared by pilot-in-the-loop(More)
This paper describes a preliminary study exploring the possibility of implementing a trajectory-based operations concept in high-density traffic with a large proportion of helicopters, as may occur during disaster relief operations such as after major earthquakes. Based on a trajectory-based operations concept proposed by JAXA, a sample traffic situation(More)
