Abstract
RESEARCH IS REQUIRED TO IDENTIFY THE MINIMUM EXTERNAL FIELD OF VIEW REQUIRED BY THE PILOT FOR MANUALLY CONTROLLED APPROACHES TO AND LANDINGS ON RUNWAYS USING ONLY AIRCRAFT PERFORMANCE INDICATORS AND EXTERNAL VISUAL CUES DERIVED FROM RUNWAY SITE GEOMETRY TOGETHER WITH EXTERNAL VISUAL APPROACH AND LANDING AIDS. THERE IS AN ALREADY DEVELOPED, COMPREHENSIVE METHOD FOR INVESTIGATING FIELD-OF-VIEW REQUIREMENTS FOR APPROACH AND LANDING. THAT METHOD, PROPOSED HEREIN, INVOLVES FOUR CLEARLY DEFINED ANALYTICAL STEPS IN PHASE I PRIOR TO EXPERIMENTAL VALIDATION IN PHASE II. THE FOUR STEPS ADDRESS: (A) KINEMATIC REPRESENTATION OF AIRCRAFT APPROACH AND LANDING TRAJECTORIES, (B) PILOT-AIRCRAFT DYNAMIC GUIDANCE AND CONTROL PERFORMANCE, (C) VISUAL ELEMENT MOTION ANALYSIS, AND (D) FIELD-OF-VIEW REQUIREMENTS. THE ACTIVITIES IN PHASE I WILL CONCLUDE WITH THE PREPARATION OF AN EXPERIMENTAL PLAN FOR VALIDATION OF FIELD-OF-VIEW REQUIREMENTS AND A FINAL REPORT. A CONSIDERABLE LIBRARY OF RELATED RESEARCH AND EXAMPLES OF ASSESSMENT, REVIEWED HEREIN, WILL PROVIDE RESOURCES FOR DEVELOPING FIELD-OF-VIEW REQUIREMENTS FOR THE INTENDED APPLICATION.
