Paper Abstract

The design and evaluation process for novel displays in military fast jet cockpits is far from optimal. In this paper, the design of symbology is discussed in terms of those involved in the design process and the sources of information available to provide a sound basis for the design of novel Helmet-Mounted Display (HMD) symbology. Further, the evaluation process is discussed in terms of the available methods (subjective and objective), experimental media (flight and simulations), experimental tasks (full mission and part tasks) and the measurement of the key design drivers (workload and situational awareness). Finally, it is argued that the cycle should be more structured and that greater feedback between the operational use of displays and their design is required. These points are summarized in the form of ten guidelines for the design and evaluation of HMD symbology.
