Knowledge Base Development for Rotorcraft Pilot-Vehicle Interface

Cybernet performed extensive review of existing and developing pilot-vehicle interface (PVI) technology, continued development of standardized evaluation and testing methods through it's InterFACE evaluator system (IES), and developed an object-oriented software tool for rapid prototyping of PVIs called FlightPath. FlightPath contains three primary functions: head-down map editing, event/instrument cueing and value setting with generic moving map displays, and event log filing. Used in combination with IES-based evaluation, FlightPath facilitates side-by-side development and evaluation of alternative conceptual PVI designs on a level playing field.
