Abstract
THE AIRCREW TRAINING PROBLEM IS ONE OF EFFECTIVENESS VERSUS AFFORDABILITY. REALISTIC EXPERIENCE CAN BE ACHIEVED WITHOUT EXPENDING JP-4 AND STORES. FLIGHT SIMULATORS NO LONGER HAVE TO BE PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE. COMPUTER GRAPHICS MERGED WITH DYNAMIC TARGET IMAGERY PROVIDE AN INTERACTIVE TRAINING CAPABILITY AT LOW COST FOR A STAND-ALONE SYSTEM WITH BUILT-IN INSTRUCTOR. IN THE PROPOSED PROGRAM, ADVANCED DEVELOPMENT WILL BE CONDUCTED TO RESULT IN A COMPUTERIZED TARGET ACQUISITION TRAINER (TAT). ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY WILL PROVIDE CAPABILITY FOR REAL-TIME FEEDBACK OF REALISTIC VISUAL IMAGERY TO TRAINEE TO PERMIT HIM TO LEARN FROM SIMULATED TARGET RUNS ON A TRIAL AND ERROR BASIS WITH VARIABLE EW AND NAVIGATION PROBLEMS INCLUDED. CUES AND CRITIQUES WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM A SYNTHETIC INSTRUCTOR'S VOICE. IN PHASE I WE WILL ASSEMBLE A TAT DEMONSTRATION UNIT AND DEVELOP SUFFICIENT INTERACTIVE SOFTWARE FOR ITS MICROCOMPUTER CONTROLLED LASERDISC. WE WILL ADAPT A QUANTITY OF GFE FILM FOOTAGE AND IMPRINT IT ON THE LASERDISC FOR CALL-UP BY THE COMPUTER AT THE COMMAND OF EITHER THE STUDENT OR INSTRUCTOR. THE COMPLETE STAND-ALONE SYSTEM (DESIGNED TO COST LESS THAN $25,000 IN PRODUCTION) WILL BE DELIVERED IN SIX MONTHS TO NTEC FOR CONTINUED USE IN EVALUATION OF ITS APPLICABILITY WHILE ADDITIONAL PRODUCTION PROTOTYPES AND THEIR FULL-UP INTERACTIVE SOFTWARE PROGRAMS ARE BEING PERFECTED DURING PHASE II.
