Despite two decades of manned spaceflight development, the recent thrust for increased human exploration places significant demands on current technology. More information is needed in understanding how human control affects mission performance and most importantly, how to design support systems that aid in human-system collaboration. This information on(More)
Predicting astronaut performance when choosing where to land on the Moon, or the landing point designation task, is difficult. Human judgment and decision making for this application is not well-characterized. To address this knowledge deficiency, an experiment was designed to replicate the landing point designation task in both ideal and poor landing(More)
Raja Parasuraman, the father ofNeuroergonomics (the crossroads of Ergonomics andNeuroscience, Figure 1) has opened the doors to new discoveries and techniques for advancing understanding of human behavior with the underlying brain mechanisms (Parasuraman, 1998). As of his death in 2015, a precise and objective definition of the concept of mental workload(More)
The objective of this paper is to examine current literature and to compile a guideline for integrating human factors principles into systems engineering. Each of the four suggested design stages — requirements acquisition, concept generation, preliminary, detailed — is characterized by a short description of the systems engineer's and the(More)
