General

The research simulator at IFS serves to test novel cockpit and flight control concepts in the field of military aviation. In order to prove the performance of newly developed functionalities, human-machine experiments are carried out in realistic, complex missions.

General

Eye Tracking Measurement

Ergonomic aspects of the cockpit are at the forefront of human-machine experiments. A modern eye movement system is used to collect data on the pilot's operation and attention. In the research area of adaptive automation, the recorded data is used in real time to support the pilot appropriately.

Cockpitconfiguration

The cockpit design of the 6th generation combat aircraft must meet the requirements of future missions. Depending on the task spectrum, the use of double-seater or single-seater fighter jets can be advantageous. With the flexible design of the simulator, both configurations can be tested at the IFS.
