Evaluation of the Effects of Pilotage Sensor Field of View and Location on the Performance of Disparate Flying Tasks 952034
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of pilotage sensor field-of-view (FOV) size and location on pilot performance. Eight pilots performed disparate flying tasks in an advanced rotorcraft simulator. Sensor FOV size and location were examined in a four (FOV) by two (sensor location) by two (replications) within-subjects factorial design. Three variables showed reliable effects of varying FOV on performance of two flight tasks. Pilot workload ratings also showed a significant effect of FOV size.
