Abstract
The cognitive cockpit concept has been proposed as a potential disorientation countermeasure. It involves monitoring the pilot's physiological, behavioral and subjective responses during disorientation. This data is combined to provide a real time model of pilot state, whichis used as a basis for optimizing pilot performance. This study attempts to investiage whether there are consistent behavioral or physiological "markers" that can be monitored during a specific disorientation scenario. No integrated Physiological Trainer with interactive aircraft controls and an eye-tracking device was employed. Fourteen subjects proficient in maintaining straight and level flight and who have acquired the skills in changing attitude participated in the study. TRUNCATED
