DIGITAL DATA BROADCAST: AN AID TO AREA NAVIGATION

Preliminary analysis has indicated that a Digital Data Broadcast System (DDBS) concept could be applied as a potential solution to the problems of cockpit workload, pilot blunders, and airborne data storage. The basic philosophy of the program described in this paper was to evaluate concurrently both the operational impact of the DDBS concept under a set of flight evaluations and the technical feasibility of a DDBS engineering model. The principal conclusion of this program substantiates and amplifies the original goals of the DDBS development effort, namely, a reduction of cockpit workload, pilot blunders, and steering errors.
