EXPERIMENTAL TEST PLAN FOR THE EVALUATION OF AIRCRAFT SEPARATION ASSURANCE DISPLAYS USING AIRLINE FLIGHT SIMULATORS

This test plan describes an experiment for evaluating the cockpit impact of the use of Aircraft Separation Assurance information using a jet transport aircraft simulator and operational airline flight crews. Three concepts for displaying ASA information will be utilized during the evaluation; six flight scenarios, each with a set of six flight conflicts, will be used. Figures of merit for evaluating the display concepts include response delay times, achieved miss distances, deviation from desired flight path, achieved acceleration rates, and qualitative crew opinions.
