Paper Abstract

The current trend towards the 'glass cockpit' and 'mission management systems' has certainly increased the data and facilities which are available to the crew but it has also encouraged the crew to devote a significant amount of their attention to 'head down' operations. With the projected complexity of future battlefield scenarios there is an increasing requirement to remain 'head out' and the virtual cockpit is now firmly established as an operational concept for increasing the crew efficiency of future fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft by efficient presentation of information and the flexible configuration of interfacing techniques.
