Abstract
LOW-COST PRODUCTION OF VISUAL SYSTEMS WILL BE ACHIEVED BY (1) LIMITING THE OUTPUT TO MONOCHROME SCENES SUITABLE FOR NVG SIMULATION AND (2) USING A NOVEL ARCHITECTURE. IT CONSISTS OF MULTIPLE IDENTICAL 3D/PERSPECTIVE TRANSFORMATION AND RENDERING MODULES THAT CAN BE MASS-PRODUCED AT VERY LOW COST, AND IT CONTAINS A MECHANISM THAT ALLOWS ONE TO OPERATE SUCH MODULES IN PARALLEL, GENERATING SCENES OF ARBITRARY COMPLEXITY. THUS IT WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE TO MINIMIZE COST FOR EACH SPECIFIC TRAINER SYSTEM BY BUILDING INTO IT ONLY AS MANY PARALLEL MODULES AS NEEDED TO ACHIEVE THE REQUIRED SCENE COMPLEXITY. USE OF THE LATEST OFF-THE-SHELF AND CUSTOM VLSI CIRCUITRY WILL FURTHER REDUCE PRODUCTION COST.
