AbstractThe present E2C cockpit does not support the display of tactical information from the combat information center. The use of flat panel displays in the E2C cockpit will make it possible for pilot and copilot to observe tactical information in a form similar to that presented to the Naval Flight Officer operators in the CIC compartment. The addition of reconfigurable displays will lead to a reduction of scan time during certain flight situations. There are a number of problems like high illumination level, severe space constraints, difficulty of accessing the controls etc. During the phase I study we will study the civilian and military controls technology to find the best controls technology to solve the problems of the E2C cockpit. Three alternative approaches will be presented to solve the problems of the cockpit controls and of image and data visualization. The present controls and the display technologies as well as future technologies that will be available in the next decade will be thoroughly studied for the purpose of the recommendations.
