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)
This paper describes the development of a prototype Airborne Weather Information System (AWIS) which uses a low-speed datalink, and the evaluation of its functionality and effectiveness. The AWIS is intended to provide pilots operating under Visual Flight Rules (VFR) with strategic weather information in real-time so as to be used as a decision-support tool(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)
