The Challenge

Despite advances in technology, military fighter pilots are frequently outfitted with a traditional kneepad, paper documents containing critical information strapped to the thigh. Quick access to flight plans and weather data can make or break a mission, so he U.S. Navy came to us to design a digital alternative to the outdated kneepad.

We conducted in-cockpit research into how the kneepad is used by pilots, examining every aspect from ergonomics to the challenges faced by digitizing documents that need to be fail-proof in all possible conditions.
