Abstract
The aim of the report is to document the detailed human engineering system analysis of CF SAR helicopter missions and to identify the operational deficiencies for an assumed air vehicle fitted with "off-the-shelf" technology. The aim of the study was achieved by completing the following: a. a mission analysis; b. a function analysis; c. a function allocation; and d. the identification of air vehicle capability deficiencies. Section One identifies the aim, objectives and scope of the human engineering study which is documented in the remainder of the report. Section One also provides the project background. Section Two reports on the mission analysis. A summary of the current SAR role is provided followed by statements of the SAR helicopter mission(s). This is followed by a brief description of each of the missions including environmental factors and mission time constraints. System requirements derived from the original mission objectives and mission analysis are then identified. Section Three describes the function analysis, and includes the composite mission scenario and associated function decomposition from the top to the fourth level. Fourth level function descriptions are also included. Section Four describes the operational concept and assumed air vehicle, and documents the allocation of functions to man or machine. TRUNCATED
