Abstract

Objective & Significance The proposed presentation discusses research indicating that pilot training can be improved using eye tracking technology. This study has been conducted with subject matter experts in an operational training context, demonstrating feasibility for real-world use. Background A pilot’s eye behaviour can give important clues about how they are allocating their attention and what their level of situation awareness is. Eye tracking systems have considerable potential as a training tool, as they provide an accurate and objective way to measure eye behaviour. While many previous systems have been impractical outside of laboratory settings, new console-mounted tools have emerged which enable precise eye and head-tracking without requiring a physical device to be worn by the pilot. The current research involves a mixed methods study of a console-mounted eye-tracking system for flight crew training in an introductory fighter pilot training context. The primary aim is to determine whether providing instructors with an objective real-time visualisation of students’ scanning behaviour facilitates training.
