INTERFACES : Spacecraft Flight Operations Systems ( AKA Mission Control Centre ) • CLARITY: These interfaces are heavily optimised for expert use • MODULAR UI : Multiple Screen Interfaces • GRAPHICAL INTEGRITY : A bad information architecture or design could lead to catastrophic results.

So it can be designed with no consideration for platform flexibility or cohabitation. • They use a lot of multi-screen displays, within which the UI is divided into panels.
