procedures. As more information is obtained on the fault, this information will automatically update to deal with the situation as it is understood at that point. Users have the option of going directly to the action recommendations screen if they desire and bypass all other information. The MORE button will allow the user to progress to the next page to view further action recommendations. MCA, analysis and secondary buttons will flash as new information becomes available.
The investigations reported here represent an important first step towards identifying the informational requirements of aircrew using advanced sensor technology to determine the status of the mechanical systems on their aircraft. These informational requirements have provided the basis for the initial development of an effective interface utilizing advanced sensor technology that will hopefully improve aircrew safety and enhance mission effectiveness.
