Abstract: The U.S. Army Research Laboratory Human Research and Engineering Directorate (ARL/HRED) assesses crewstation design for new and upgraded U.S. Army Aviation aircraft during simulations and operational testing. The assessments are conducted to identify and eliminate human factors design problems. ARL/HRED evaluates pilot workload and situational awareness (SA) during simulations and operational testing to assess crewstation design. To date, more than 12,000 pilot workload ratings and 3000 pilot SA ratings have been collected by ARL/HRED for Army aircraft. This report summarizes the Bedford Workload Rating Scale, Situation Awareness Rating Technique, and China Lake Situational Awareness scale ratings collected during simulations and operational testing to assess crewstation design.
