Paper Abstract

Combined multisensor display concepts for man-in-the-loop navigation and target detection/recognition in attack aircraft and operator guided missiles were developed and evaluted against multifunction and multidisplays. The analytical and experimental (using simulated FLIR and radar sensors) data studied under this ONR sponsored effort indicated that combined multisensor displays may offer significant improvements in mission profiles by permitting all weather and nighttime operation, improving navigation, permitting lower altitude operation, increasing the number of targets detected and recognized improving weapon delivery, reducing pilot workload and reducing display space. In conclusion, combined multisensor displays provide a high-leverage technique (significant improvements with a minimum investment) to improve the operator interface with aircraft and missile. The improved interface may provide significant improvements in mission profiles.
