Abstract
Not Available The operator of Uninhabited Combat Air Vehicles (UCAVs) may be located at a ground station, on a maneuvering airplane, or on a moving ship. Design criteria are required that specify the allowable uncorrelated motions encountered by the UCAV operator during periods of high-workload manual control. In addition, the optimum characteristics of the cockpit controllers will be highly dependent upon the operator's location. In Phase I a research program will be conducted to investigate the impact on pilot performance, handling qualities, and comfort resulting from uncorrelated visual and motion cues. Pilot subjects will operate a simulated UCAV in tracking and ground attack missions while riding in a maneuvering airplane. Tracking error and other objective performance measurements will be made and subjective pilot opinions will be obtained. The UCAV operator's environment will consist of a ground station (fixed base), and airborne in an airplane in straight flight, steady turns, and rapid rolling maneuvers. A single sidestick (PCtype) joystick controller will be used for Phase I. In Phase II, both the scope of the UCAV tasks and the characteristics of the controller will be expanded.
