decision point

The latest point at which, as a result of power-unit failure, the pilot is assumed to decide to discontinue a takeoff. The decision point is for the determination of takeoff performance. The difference between the power unit failure point and the decision point is the delay that occurs before a power-unit failure can be detected (i.e., the pilots' reaction time to identify failure of one of the power units).
