AbstractCHI Systems proposes to develop and exercise a methodology that will enable pilot anthropometry and eye positioning data to be used to optimize the selection and placement of electronic displays in the E-2C cockpit. In Phase I we will (1) define electronic information display options and human factors issues that impact display selection and placement, (2) identify E-2C critical pilot tasks that impact display selection and placement, (3) specify design techniques and tools that facilitate Hawkeye pilot eye position and anthropometric data collection and analysis, (4) construct Phase II plan and schedule for E-2C pilot anthropometric and eye-point data collection, analysis, and utilization, and (5) document Phase I findings and associated recommendations. In Phase II we will (1) collect actual E-2C pilot anthropometric and eye position data using fleet and readiness squadrons, (2) translate these data into a form that is meaningful to E-2C display suite development, and (3) produce guidelines for E-2C display selection and placement.
