    information displays, various
  • visualization techniques, and input devices
  • Continue work with AFIT studies

Benefits to the Warfighter
Description
  • Provides advanced human factors support for all
    HEAL efforts by conducting usability studies,
    cognitive task analysis, information data
    collection, and designing test and demonstration
    strategies
  • LOCIS wing-at-a-glance view will provide
    commanders with an integrated visualization of
    current wing level assets to make better
    decisions
  • POMx usability studies will provide the
    technician the most effective hardware and
    software to complete open work orders and order
    parts at the flightline

Contributions
  • Conducted numerous data collection tasks for
    requirements
  • definition, analysis of maintenance
    information displays, various visualization
    techniques, and input devices for both LOCIS and
    POMx
