Flight Simulator: Use of SpaceGraph Display in an Instructor/Operator Station. Final Report.
Sher, Lawrence D.
This report describes SpaceGraph, a new computer-driven display technology capable of showing space-filling images, i.e., true three dimensional displays, and discusses the advantages of this technology over flat displays for use with the instructor/operator station (IOS) of a flight simulator. Ideas resulting from 17 brainstorming sessions with pilots, instructor pilots, supervisors of pilot training, researchers in pilot training, and experts in human factors related to flying are outlined chronologically by meeting number. Concepts involved in these suggestions are discussed, and a brief discussion of priorities for future development concludes the report. Details of the time-varying, very-wide-field-of-view optics used are appended. (MER)
