HUMAN FACTORS EXPERIMENTS FOR DATA LINK
Eight two-man crews of FAA/NAFEC test Pilots made four runs each in a GAT-2 simulator to evaluate four displays presenting short-message ATC commands and advisories. The counterbalanced experimental design was later replicated with eight crews of airline and ALPA pilots; and a single crew of AOPA pilots provided further data. Response-time measurements were taken with each display. This information was supplemented by a questionnaire administered to each crew member at the completion of his experimental runs. The use of a display limited to seven characters, or another employing a NIMO CRT was ruled out from further evaluation. Pilot opinion was generally favorable to the use of a display presenting three lines of seven LED characters each, and a linear display of 32 plasma characters. (Author)
