ABSTRACT: Focused on developing and evaluating a concept for a display that helps major airline flight dispatchers with their icing-related decisions. The display concept included detailed current icing product/forecast icing product (CIP/FlP) information for the terminal area with a focus on standard instrument departures (SIDs) and standard arrival routes (STARs). A display prototype for a terminal area around CVG with one SID and one STAR was implemented and evaluated. The three flight dispatchers who participated in the evaluation liked the prototype displays and thought they would be useful. The evaluation did uncover various usability issues such as usage of color, spatial layout of items, and display navigation.
