This report is one of a series of documented studies and experiments directed to the improvement and standardization of cockpit alerting systems. The efforts in this current study are noteworthy in that the three major manufacturers of Commercial Transport Aircraft, Douglas, Lockheed, and Boeing conducted the tests and co-authored this report. The primary purpose of the study is to extend and validate, through simulation, the precepts advanced in the previous contract study. The primary purpose of this report is to document the results of objective and subjective tests and the development of the functional design of the candidate alerting systems which will be implemented and evaluated in a flight simulator.
