Human Engineering Considerations for Implementing Enhanced Synthetic Vision Systems in Vertical Flight Capable Platforms
|Publication Date:||1 September 2013|
The scope of this Vertical Flight document is limited to human behavioral technologies associated with design and/or implementation of Enhanced Synthetic Vision Systems (ESVS) in vertical flight aircraft. Any overlap into logic problems or hardware/software design shall be considered to be incidental to the human factors issues. Where the performance characteristics of specific technologies are relevant they will be identified, and where performance criteria are relevant to specific intended functions/use they will be identified.
From a regulatory view, intended function (Full Flight Guidance
The document is independent of candidate technologies and concentrates on human interface criteria. This document does not include consideration of detection and/or display of air targets or integration of systems such as TCAS.
This document addresses human factors considerations and requirements in data access, display comprehension, interpretation and application of imagery and integrated symbology in Enhanced (sensor) and Synthetic (database) Vision Systems as applicable to vertical flight platforms, and is a compilation of human factors recommended practices in the design and/or implementation of ESVS. It may be updated to reflect research and development results and as the technology improves and applications expand, the coverage of the document will be expanded.
