The paper essentially focuses on developing a man-machine interface, which encompasses human engineering and ergonomics details such as functional & operational requirements, allocation, information flow and task analysis. The result is a synthesis of new functionalities, practicability and whole academic exploration. An effort is made to address the various problems faced by the user in defense forces during tactical situations. The paper aims towards an exercise evolving and testing a methodology that would be consistent with such design problems. The ultimate purpose of this paper is to create a body of knowledge, which shall serve as an initiator for discussion of issues that concern design.

Keywords: Ergonomics, human engineering, man-machine interface, function alloacation, mission analysis, information flow, task analysis, control, safety, mock up studies
