Abstract

"Reliability and safety characteristics [7] of an anthropotechnical system are the basic information about the correctness of relation between a man (e.g. pilot) and a helicopter (machine). Methods of defining them are still an open problem. The article presents an innovative way of definition of reliability characteristics of a pilot and a helicopter engine as well as an entire anthropotechnical system. Described are theoretical bases of this method, which are various configurations of the ""equation of state"" describing relations pilot – helicopter and helicopter – pilot [8, 9]. Defined was the set of ""numbers of limit state violations"" of the parameter of pilot’s physical condition aP and technical state of the helicopter aS, which as ""premises of damage"" were used for calculation of estimators of reliability characteristics. It is noteworthy that these characteristics could be particularly useful in the process of comparing different pilots and helicopters in various situations appearing in the course of utilisation"
