Permenter, Kathryn E. and Baker, Clifford C. (1989): Task-Operator Study for the Primary Flight Control Center of Tarawa Class (LHA) Ships. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 33rd Annual Meeting 1989. pp. 1119-1123.
This report presents the findings of a Task-Operator study for the Primary Flight Control (Pri-Fly) major operating stations aboard Tarawa class (LHA) ships. The LHA carries a variety of attack and cargo helicopters, plus AV-8A Sea Harrier jet aircraft. Pri-Fly is the area of the ship which controls the landing and recovery of aircraft, as well as flight control when aircraft are in the immediate vicinity of the ship. Two main positions were examined by this study, the Air Administrator (Air-Boss) and the Assistant Air Administrator (Mini-Boss). The purposes of this study were to perform a task-operator study of Pri-Fly personnel task requirements, to identify human-equipment interface design problems given the existing configuration of Pri-Fly within LHAs, and to provide general design recommendations based on the findings of the study. Seven tasks were undertaken to meet the objectives of the project. Overall, the review identified numerous human engineering design problems in Pri-Fly, many of which severely limit the performance of Pri-Fly personnel. Based on this review, it is asserted that significant improvement can be realized, in terms of air operations safety and efficiency, by instituting a Pri-Fly improvement program.

Andrews, Phillip J., Malone, Thomas B., Permenter, Kathryn E. and Eike, David R. (1988): Human Factors in the Space and Naval Warfare Command: Display System Standardization. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 32nd Annual Meeting 1988. pp. 1090-1094.
This paper describes the state and status of human factors within the Space and Naval Warfare Command (SPAWAR) by focusing on a major effort currently being pursued within SPAWAR, that of developing a standard workstation design concept for Navy applications. Human factors concerns were paramount in the assessment of requirements for a standardized workstation applicable to Navy-wide requirements. The major human factors concern was display usability.

Malone, Thomas B., Baker, Clifford C. and Permenter, Kathryn E. (1988): Human Engineering in the Naval Sea Systems Command. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 32nd Annual Meeting 1988. pp. 1104-1107.
This paper describes the status of human engineering in the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). NAVSEA has pursued four major thrusts in the development and application of human engineering technology: 1) human engineering research and development efforts, 2) human engineering front-end analysis, 3) human engineering audits as part of the Logistic Review Group (LRG) formal review of each program, and 4) ship and ship system engineering design and evaluation. This paper describes the progress that NAVSEA has made in each area.

Heasly, Christopher C., Permenter, Kathryn E., Malone, Thomas B., Baker, Clifford C. and Lawrence, Louis G. (1988): Determination of Program Initiation Phase MANPRINT Requirements for the Lighter, Amphibious Heavy-Lift (LAMP-H). In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 32nd Annual Meeting 1988. pp. 1113-1116.
The objective of this paper is to describe the approach utilized in the development of MANPRINT requirements for the Lighter, Amphibious-Heavy Lift (LAMP-H). LAMP-H is an air cushioned vehicle with a crew of six: a pilot, a navigator, and four stevedores who load and unload equipment from the vessel. The project was initiated during the program initiation phase of development. Several types of Air Cushion Vehicle (ACV) lighter craft were evaluated as baseline comparison systems for LAMP-H. The effort involved insuring compliance with human engineering design criteria and practice, incorporating lessons learned from analogous air-cushioned vehicles lighter craft, and addressing habitability, noise and other design issues affecting crew performance of tasks critical to the operation and maintenance of the LAMP-H. This paper details the analyses and techniques implemented in the early phases of the weapon system acquisition process for designing improved soldier-machine systems, as well as the products of the effort.

Permenter, Kathryn E., Fleger, Stephen A. and Malone, Thomas B. (1987): Advanced Human Factors Engineering Tool Technologies. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 31st Annual Meeting 1987. pp. 345-349.
This paper presents the results of a study to identify the human factors engineering (HFE) technologies or tools presently used, and projected for use, by HFE specialists. Both traditional and advanced tools were candidates for inclusion in the study, although emphasis of the study was placed on advanced computer applications. Human factors practitioners representing the government, academia and private industry were surveyed to identify those tools most frequently used or viewed as most important for conducting HFE related work. If advanced tool capabilities did not meet existing job requirements, the specialists identified the types of tools they would like to see developed to fill the existing technology gaps. To facilitate the inclusion of new technologies as they become available, and to aid in the search and retrieval of a tool's capabilities, information obtained on the tools was entered into a database. The survey resulted in the identification of 88 advanced tools. The results of the study suggest that although a large number of tools presently exist that are capable of supporting human factors specialists in their profession, the HFE community needs additional tools, especially those configured to run on a desktop microcomputer. Future emphasis in tool development should focus on expert systems, human factors database compendiums, computer-assisted design (CAD) applications, workload prediction tools, and automated task analysis programs.
