Reactions of Pilots to Warning Systems for Visual Collision Avoidance 720312

The FAA conducted a series of six experiments having application to the development of pilot warning instruments (PWI). The experiments were concerned with the effect of warning rates on pilot performance, pilot response to imminent collision threats, the evaluation of scanning patterns, the value of warning-only, the effect of relative motion on pilot performance, and the effect of PWI display sector size. The results of these experiments offer a variety of useful data in the area of visual collision avoidance.
