Human Engineering Considerations in the Application of Color to Electronic Aircraft Displays
This document is intended for the application of color to cathode-ray-tube (CRT) displays, liquid crystal displays (LCD) and other types of display technologies such as projection displays. Emerging color display technologies other than those noted above, may not be adequately covered by these recommendations.
Color recommendations will not address Night Vision Devices (NVD), Head-Up Displays (HUD) or Head or Helmet Mounted Displays (HMD).
This document is applicable to aircraft as understood in 14 CFR Parts 23, Part 25, Part 27 and Part 29, and EASA CS-23, CS-25. CS-27 and CS-29 certification standards.
The use color content as both a tool to increase situation awareness and as a sole information discriminator display has increased and will continue to increase. Correct implementation of these applications of displays is essential and critical to safe flight display applications.
SAE G-10 Aerospace Behavioral Engineering Technology Committee, specifically the G-10D Color Subcommittee, has been tasked to update this Aerospace Recommended Practice to provide current document color use guidance to implement increased use of color when used in and on flight decks and cockpits.
