Abstract : Results of the console/trainer compatibility test indicated no aparent incompatibility of equipment. The marriage of GMT-P S/N 002 with programmer test station from Artillery Set No. 5 was satisfactory and all trainer systems re sponded correctly to commands received from ground support equipment. The precision fixed resistors can be used on the summing amplifier printed circuit cards to replace potentiometers now being used. This would eliminate existing alinement problems in the control system. The lathe bed azimuth laying system modificaion to the ST-120 stabilized platform simulator per formed to design requirements. The variable speed accelerometer simulator with minor modifi cations will meet the requirements of simulating different geographical locations and headings. The Block III guidance computer simulator satis fied the checkout requirements of the peripheral equipment within the programmer test station. Static inverters can replace the rotary inverter presently utilized in the guided missile trainer; however, the units tested did not have the re quired capacity. The AK simulator responded correctly to the preset values and inserted malfunctions. (Author)
