Paper Abstract

Every new generation of fighter aircraft presents new challenges for the various design disciplines that are involved in their development; the current generation of fighters -- Eurofighter, Rafale, and F22 -- are no different in this respect. We look to using new structural materials advanced flight control systems, and even better and more comprehensive sensors to extend the system's overall performance and capability. This paper looks at the area of cockpit design -- the 'how do we keep the pilot in real control of his tasks' part of the total package of the aircraft and weapons system design. I will look at the design requirements for the cockpit, and discuss some potential solutions to the inevitable resulting design problems.
