Simulated Three-Dimensional Computer Graphics Training Display for Air Weapons Controllers. Final Report.
Finegold, Lawrence S.; And Others
The research and development project demonstrated the viability of a simulated training system to address training issues related to three-dimensional air intercept tactics and geometry, and resulted in the production of two videotapes for use in the United States Air Force Interceptor Weapons School. An introduction discusses the overall development of the system, which provided the capacity to display and control up to three aircraft in a defined airspace. Additional supplemental graphics to address specific training uses were also developed using full-color, raster-scan, animated microcomputer display technology. Project background, objective, approach used, and results are discussed, including a summary of the major technological difficulties encountered. An overview then describes the system and provides details on hardware and firmware, applications software, the visual scene, two versions of the aircraft display and control software, special graphics relating to training issues, and system use. A final discussion includes a summary, an outline of technical issues, and conclusions. Sixteen references and a 28-item bibliography are included. (LMM)
