ABOUT THE PROJECT

 

The focus of this project was to look at user experience through situation analysis of a pilot. This was a team project and our situation was 'Emergency pilot ejection over enemy territory'. We analysed the situation from a pilots Point of View. The research pointed out many essential and noteworthy tips of survival. It has many background duties which will enhance the probability of the pilot's survival. Midhun Krishnakumar, Vaibhav Doi and Manu Srivastava were also part of the team.

How might we help the pilot who crash-landed beyond enemy lines to reach the safe zone such that the enemy search party does not locate the pilot.
