Paper Abstract

An experiment was conducted to compare performances on operational tasks with and without new earth-fixed symbology representing the positions of waypoints, battle positions, and engagement areas. Fourteen experienced AH-64 Apache pilots flew a representative attack mission in the Pilot/Rotorcraft Intelligent Symbology Management Simulator (PRISMS). Performances were significantly better in waypoint crossing accuracy, landing accuracy, engagement area recognition accuracy, and concealment from enemy positions when using the new symbols.
