EVALUATION OF THE AVIATION WEATHER AND NOTAM SYSTEM (AWANS)

This activity was conducted to ascertain the operational effectiveness of an experimental system in providing automation capabilities geared to flight service station application. Primary consideration was given to the man-machine relationship and the efficacy of the data and presentation formats made available to the specialist through the system. Maintenance, technical, and software aspects were not specifically addressed. Results of the study indicate that the automated system provides textual and graphic data in a form suitable for use in preflight and in-flight briefing modes. Further, the equipment configurations under study contained one which was acceptable, though not deemed optimal, by the specialists. This acceptability included the display size, character size and font, graphic and textual products, communications equipment, console design, and associated equipment layout. (Author)
