F-15 Dual Role Fighter Cockpit Integration 831472

This paper briefly describes the background to the design, the process used in designing, and the “missionized” crew station designs of the F-15 Dual Role Fighter (DRF). The McDonnell Aircraft Company (McAir) had begun an Advanced Fighter Capability Demonstrator program to develop and demonstrate an enhanced air-to-ground capability in the F-15 years before the USAF identified the need for a DRF. This experience, plus a closely coordinated effort between McAir and USAF personnel, and extensive use of a high-fidelity simulator have resulted in F-15 DRF crew station designs that afford both tremendous flexibility and capability.
