Abstract : These proceedings are a collection of papers presented at the 1981 Image Generation/Display Conference II. The Image Conference is devoted to issues relevant to the development and use of imagery generated and displayed for visual flight simulation. The purpose of the Conference is to provide a forum for presenting and discussing topics concerned with the imagery generated for out-of-the cockpit and sensor visual flight simulation. The 31 papers presented were compatible with the theme of the Conference, including both engineering research/development and behavioral research. In the engineering area, papers covered such topics as computer-simulated forward-looking infrared and low light-level television imagery, computer image generation (CIG) texturing of curved surfaces, shuttle mission simulation, nap of the earth flight simulation, light valve projectors, lasers in simulation, area-of-interest displays, tactical combat simulation, sensor simulation, and helmet-mounted displays. Topics in behavioral research included such items as effects of visual and motion cues, identification of targets in CIG displays, psychophysical aspects of visual processing, visual illusions, visually induced self-motion, determination of visual cue requirements, visual data base development for terrain flight simulation, transformation realism, and strategies to optimize CIG image content.
