Abstract/Description:
University of Central Florida College of Engineering Thesis; There is a great need for a graphic simulation system used as a training device to take the place of actual flying. A good system will greatly reduce the cost of training men as well as cut down on casualties. Several systems have been tried and are now in use. Among them are two that are worthy of more study. These are the CCTV or model board and the digital systems. Both have several disadvantages that create a need for a new system. One such system is an optically based digitally processes system that combines the best features of two previous systems. This system uses charge-coupled-device memories that are digitally accessed by a microcomputer based system. The information from the CCD's is then processed and calculations are performed on it to transform it into a form that can be displayed on a cockpit-like screen. The system also allows for interaction between the pilot and itself.
