Wright, Robert H.
The geographic orientation requirement for the Army's lighter aircraft, and for Army aviation as a system, is a system-analysis and system-design problem that appears to have defied solution. The factors considered in this paper indicate that the requirement is not filled by a simple "more sophisticated machine" systems approach. Instead, the man part of the man-machine system needs to be deliberately "designed in" to contribute his full potential as a functional part of the system. Also, the Army aviation operational environment, with all of its complex interacting coordination requirements, needs to be considered, for an affordable and operationally effective geographic orientation system.
