Enhancement of Human Effectiveness in System Design, Training, and Operation: Annual Progress Report 1 July 1973-30 June 1974.
Illinois Univ., Urbana. Savoy Aviation Research Lab.
The report is concerned with research performance and results at the Savoy Aviation Research Lab. Research accomplishments are described according to eight tasks which are of two general types, those dealing with human resources research and those dealing with manned systems research. Specifically, four tasks deal primarily with pilot selection and training, performance assessment, and the prediction of future operational effectiveness; three tasks deal with human perceptual and decision processes and with principles of aviation display, control, and computer-assisted manned system design; and one task bridges both major research categories. Several of the tasks are aimed at advancing human factors research methodology and theory. The report lists: scientific reports published (12), articles published in scientific journals (13), theses and dissertations (3), and reports to scientific societies (13). A brief aviation research laboratory program review concludes the report. (NTIS)
