DATA LINK SHORT-MESSAGE COCKPIT DISPLAY TEST
Evaluation was made of four pilot/cockpit displays for air traffic control messates. The four displays were: (1) gas discharge, (2) light-emitting diodes, (3) fiber optics, and (4) cathode-ray tube displays. Data obtained were in the form of questionnaires and measured controller response time to the messages. The results will be used to determine the optimum display for crew environment tests. It was found that, through training and practice, pilot crews can readily set up cockpit procedures and oeprate in an ATC data link display communications environment. This report documents a series of tests on cockpit input/output devices performed in a GAT-II cockpit simulator at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center during November 1973.
