An Ergonomic Concept for Take-off Performance Monitor Design 2001-01-2981

A take-off performance monitor is intended to provide timely indication of whether the take-off attempt is progressing in a satisfactory manner or otherwise to the crew. Envisaged as a non-executive instrument, it is critical that the system be ergonomic by design, thus ensuring optimal exploitation of the intended benefits of improved safety. This effectively requires the instrument to generate a correct measure of performance and to present it in an appropriate manner to the crew. The paper addresses some of the critical issues in this respect and presents the design concept developed at the Cranfield University’s College of Aeronautics.
