Paper Abstract

Given the rapidly rising complexity of advanced-development aircraft and the diminishing experience pool of crewstation designers, a requirement exists for the implementation of crewstation development tools. These tools must support real-time simulation, advanced displays, and empirical data collection. Northrop's Advanced Crewstation Integration Cockpit (ACIC) introduces full and rapid reconfigurability to a comprehensive aero-dynamic, threat, sensor and weapons system simulation presented to the pilot on conventional or advanced design displays. All controls and displays are reprogrammable, relocatable, and reconfigurable in their size, type of action, and graphical attributes. Development capability for expert systems, sensor fusion, and data collection requirements are provided for. This stand-alone system, operating in real time, is an industry first, unique in its ability to perform high utility simulation at low cost. Customized, unique performance metrics are both generated and supported by the ACIC.
