Future pilots will test the digital system

From this year, the newest system of psychophysiological testing, the “Psychophysiologist” complex, has been used to test applicants and cadets of flight schools of the Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation. News.


Future pilots will test the digital system


UPFT-1 "Psychophysiologist", developed in Taganrog, allows for a few minutes to assess the state of the human central nervous system, the level of efficiency, speed and accuracy of response, coordination of movements. In the Krasnodar Pilot School an entire special laboratory has been created, equipped with these instruments.

The complex consists of 2's small blocks. “The UFT-1 base unit resembles a portable gaming console. In the center is a liquid crystal display, and on the sides of it - control buttons. With their help, the subject answers questions from the program or reacts to signals. The second module, the psychomotor test module (MPT), includes a dial, a set of colored indicators, as well as a miniature labyrinth, ”the article says.

The device is able to conduct a cursory assessment of the personality profile, but in the case of pilots, the most relevant test of their ability to quickly think and act in a critical situation. To do this, according to the newspaper, "measure the equilibrium of the nervous system: for example, you need to press the button to stop the arrow as close as possible to the light indicator."

During another test, the subject must move the metal stylus inside the labyrinth, without touching the walls. The device checks if the applicant's hands are shaking, which should place the tip of the stylus in a special recess and keep it there. The ability to respond to certain color combinations in time is also checked.

Nowadays, a fighter pilot is a piece of goods, a rare specialist, whose preparation is very expensive. Every year their equipment is more and more expensive, and they solve very important tasks, so the selection of cadets is becoming stricter. It is advisable to weed out the unfit as early as possible.
said the publication military expert Anton Lavrov.

Modern aircraft require pilots of different skills than 30-40 years ago.

In the new century, air combat is not a “dump”, but a high-tech systems combat, therefore, first of all, they test the ability to interact with on-board electronics. On modern aircraft, the entire display on the screens, and on the old devices were. It is necessary to make sure in advance that a person is able to perceive information from the screen well, that he has normal color vision, that he can interact with the buttons. Fine motor skills, for example, are needed to keep the crosshairs on the target,
told Lavrov.

It is noted that “according to the results of the tests, the device determines whether a person experiences stress, is able to concentrate and how likely are mistakes in his work”. This allows you to quickly conduct pre-launch control without the involvement of psychologists.

    Such a device must be used for motorists. 2-3 pilots of military aircraft die in a year, and tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands are injured on the roads of citizens and non-citizens of Russia.

    The question arises, is it not risky to completely check the pilots at the mercy of electronics?

      The author is a little ,, thickened, it seems ...
      This device is more for military pilots such as pre-flight inspection .. the human condition changes even during the day!
      Of course it’s risky, and people in their right mind won’t, cut, the future of man!

    For applicants ... Previously, the bulbs were extinguished upon admission, but now they decided to digitize this business .... This is one of the stages of determining the professional group of the applicant.

    Well, glory to the CPSU, sorry, thank God! Decided, with a delay of 25 years, to use UPFT-1 "Psychophysiologist." Now, for the training of fighter pilots, it is necessary to use 3D simulators with simulated overloads, and not this outdated, from, not quite "imported," parts assembled "apparatus"
    Like "said military expert Anton Lavrov." "In the new century, air combat is not a dump." Yeah, maybe someone remembers how, during the years 1956-1966, they disdained the cannon armament of fighter jets, they say, we will fight with air-to-air missiles. And again I had to catch up with America, and again I had to put guns on Soviet fighters. And in modern combat the “dump” will remain and has a place to be.
    And enlighten, orphan. Who is that "military expert Anton Lavrov." Judging by his statements, my great-grandmother is a modern analyst in the field of everything

      You are all mixed up. Soviet fighters always had guns and prepared for aerial combat. But then the Americans had to return the guns to the planes.
      the same situation now: we have super-maneuverability for close combat, and they have an emphasis on long-range missiles and computers.

    A hardware test is good, but the commander must decide the clearance. shifting to electronics decision-making, this is a departure from command responsibility. Somehow we tried to conduct such an express analysis in our unit, so I’ll say that, at will, I made any result, then an admission. then no tolerance, then an unbalanced state. Once they were not allowed to the database, and then they said enough to pretend, go on duty.

    In the early 60s of the last century, we made a toy "Labyrinth" in an amateur radio circle. An intricate groove was sawn in the plywood, glued with chocolate foil from the bottom, with a twist on the ends of the groove. The filling is a multivibrator with two transistors, a pair of bulbs and a battery. Well, the probe, of course. NO FIGURES, you understand.
    Something sadly became ...

    coupled with a normal medical commission, why not .... it will even be interesting to compare the results
