An initial design of a tactical navigation support tool is proposed, designed to integrate horizontal and vertical separation assistance tools into one display. A novel representation of the separation problem, based on Ecological Interface Design, presents external conflict and performance constraints on an extended, wide-screen Primary Flight Display. Key issues in the current design are discussed, and an experiment is proposed to evaluate the display concept.
