Abstract: THIS PAPER I~CURSEH the general aims of human engineering and its applications to navigation equipment. Certain abilities of the human make him particularly valuable in navigation systems. In particular, the appropriate sensory, perceptual, and judgmental abilities are pointed out. Some experimental findings of human engineering are discussetl-as they apply to simple displays and also to comples systems. Several contemporary aircraft rockpit systems are described.
