Paper Abstract

A pressing concern in modern fighter aircraft cockpit design is how to present and reduce large amounts of information obtained from several sensor observations of the same object. Currently, sensor observations are presented individually as overlays or in different displays requiring the pilot to control each sensor and integrate observations. The increased number of sensors and communication networks covering extensive ranges has, however, led to an unacceptable situation that hampers pilots' situation awareness and decision-making. Therefore, some from of automatic information management is necessary to support the pilot. Although considerable technological research has been conducted on automatic sensor fusion and management of multisensor and multi source tracking systems, only little is known about how to integrate systems capabilities with pilots' decision-making.
