Swinburne Aviation and Helicopter Simulators

The Defence Science Institute is supporting the further development of Swinburne University’s helicopter simulation capability that will investigate human factors and operational issues central to safe and effective rotary wing operations. The first of these research agreements has seen the Defence Science Institute support direct development of head and eye tracking systems for simulators and PhD research programs that are advancing our understanding of the use of simulators in training. Planned follow up programs will investigate human factors and training issues in collaboration with several divisions of DSTO.
