Flight Performance Applications:

  • Flight guidance and decision-making aid for U.S. Airforce precision airdrop. Systems engineering involvement in constructive and virtual simulations, through live flight demonstration of the portable mission display airdrop application.
  • Virtual simulation studies integrating in-flight technologies and display concepts for systematic evaluation of the airlift task environment. Materials and technologies included complex scenario development, and technology integration to provide contextual simulation of the operational environment.
  • Systems research for a future reduced crew tanker virtual simulation effort, including future display concepts and virtual simulation study planning for user interaction with an autonomous boom system. 
  • User interface for an aircraft onboard secure satellite communication system.  Communication channels included moving maps, threat data, data bus sampling, free-form and prefilled communications, and test messageing interfaces on a small screen device for mobility aircraft. Virtual and live fly tests and scenarios included usability, situation awareness, and workload assessments.
