Paper Abstract

Contemporary problems in airborne displays may be traced to four primary factors. These factors are: (1) the rapid increase in our capability to collect and process large amounts of data, (2) requirements for increasingly precise information, (3) cockpit space restrictions, and (4) a diminishing gap between workload requirements and crew task load capabilities. Moreover, these factors are highly interrelated in that each seems to drive the others. Advances in reducing cockpit workload, for example, tend to be followed by requirements to perform new tasks to fill up the free time. Similarly, the less cockpit space that is available, the greater the need for information processing, and so on. The consequences of these factors, besides generating employment, have included the development of a wide range of technologies, each of which solves some problems while creating others.
