Abstract
With the advanced capabilities planned by the TALOS program comes the risk of the operator becoming overwhelmed by the information available and the operation of the suit itself. To effectively employ the suit in the field, TALOS requires an effective situational awareness display and an intuitive, low-impact way of interacting with the suits physical/sensor systems. SoarTech proposes to continue design and development of the User Experience (UE) aspect of TALOS. In this proposed effort, we will focus on two central aspects of a TALOS User Experience: 1) management of mission-critical information to the operator through the helmet HUD; 2) effective user interaction with the information available to the operator and with the suit and its subsystems.
