Abstract : This test evaluated the Mark II Roller Map. This unit uses inputs from the AN/APN-131 Doppler Navigation System to display aircraft present position directly on a flight chart. The Roller Map significantly improves the operational capa bility of the F-105D on low-level weapons delivery missions and offers a solution to the safety problems associated with cockpit map handling at low altitude. Several modifications are required to improve the operational capability of the equipment in an all-weather tactical strike fighter. These modifications are described in this report together with recommendations for the desired configuration of the Moving Map Display in future tactical fighter aircraft. (Author)
