Abstract
To develop and deliver a back projection screen and projector mounting assembly that is designed specifically to take advantage of the technological advancements that have taken place in the commercial display marketplace. With the introduction of light weight, very high performance projectors, it has become possible for the first time to take a true COTS projector and install it on a full-motion flight simulator. This major leap in projector performance has not been matched by a corresponding leap in display screen technology, nor a true understanding of the implications of using fixed-matrix projectors. Many integrators simply retrofit legacy analog CRT projectors with fixed-matrix projectors and appear satisfied with the limited performance gains that can be achieved utilizing this method. However, a significant improvement can still be achieved by approaching these updates in an integrated fashion. Utilize a back projection screen that not only complements the performance of new projectors but actually enhances the image quality and couple this improvement with the optimized placement of the fixed-matrix projectors.
