A simulation evaluation of a human-centered approach to flight deck procedures and automation for en route free maneuvering  (2005)
Abstract Header
A joint simulation was conducted by NASA Ames and Langley Research Centers. This paper presents flight deck performance and subjective data collected at the NASA Ames Research Center. During the simulation of en route free maneuvering, the presence and mixture of managed and autonomous aircraft was manipulated, as was the number of autonomous aircraft.. These manipulations allowed for an examination of the viability of both conducting mixed AFR-IFR operations, and of substantially increasing en route traffic through insertion of AFR aircraft. The Ames airside performance and pilot comment data support the safety and feasibility of the concept, with double en route capacity appearing to be easily achievable. This work was supported by NASA's Advanced Air Transportation Technologies (AATT) project.
