Extreme information overload during an aircraft accident was the origin of the project related. Interviews of pilots point at two major problems with the warning system of today: perceptual problems of too many auditory and visual signals and cognitive problems of understanding the alert messages. Experiments have shown that the existing sounds can be replaced by more associable sounds; soundimagery studies have shown that context related sounds are preferable. Furthermore, warning systems that provide messages on what to do next and show the pilot what is still operational are of greatest support to the pilot in difficult situations.
