FLIGHT DISPLAYS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION AIRCRAFT
The increasing complexity of the operational environment will dictate the requirement, and the advanced technology will provide improved information transfer warranting the conclusion. The next generation of commercial transports will no longer be designed principally for manual controls with electromechanical instruments. The cockpit designs of new aircraft will incorporate instruments and displays with digital interfaces and effective monitoring to exploit the inherent advantages of automatic controls. Modern systems engineering will be applied to the design of caution and warning systems and the designs of advanced sytems, such as multifunction switching, to reduce crew workload and stress.
