Jez Lenman & Dan Evans, Atkins / General Dynamics

Historically, the application of Human Centric Design (HCD), or Human Factors Integration (HFI) in defence terms, within the world of in-service armoured vehicles has been limited due to the long life of legacy platforms and the development of improved human factors practices only in recent years. Lethality and survivability are also prioritised for obvious reasons, but the goals and value of good HFI is not always apparent until latent human-related problems are physically realised in operational theatres. Achieving design change can be a technically challenging and costly undertaking once such systems have been fully developed and deployed.
