Abstract
This document is the final report for Human Factors Research Task 2006-111 – AIMS Feature Development which consisted of software development for a research platform desigined to simulate the operator-machine interface and controls for an airborne multisensor surveillance system. The research platform is used to evaluate design concepts and operator performance issues and is modelled on the Advanced Integrated Multisensor Surveillance (AIMS) system (formerly known as the Enhanced Low-Light Level Visible and Infrared Surveillance System – ELVISS) which is being developed at DRDC Valcartier. With up to five sensors, the AIMS will enhance the capability of search and rescue (SAR) by allowing crews to operate effectively at night and in degraded weather conditions. The report summarizes the work performed in the project and makes recommendations for the next phase. Core tasks included adding functionality to over-ride the default sensor controller on the control box and replace it with a universal serial bus (USB) controller, and adding the capability to rearrange the sensor windows and other features on the interface display and other areas on the interface. Both capabilities were added for the purpose of evaluating tools and interface design concepts.
