Abstract:

Component interconnecting techniques, patching logic and component distribution were developed which can be incorporated into the designs of training simulators. The techniques developed are to attain flexibility and versatility of general purpose computers for simulators to lessen the arduous operations presently incurred whenever alterations to an existing system are required. Emphasis was placed on providing a means to accomplish this desired result without increasing the size or space required for any given cabinet. In fact, using the techniques derived herein, the cabinet size and space needed has been cut down. A hermaphrodite body type of connector was selected utilizing crimp type pins and sockets, affixed to standard lengths of wire which in turn are inserted into the prescribed holes in the connector body as dictated by the electrical circuit design.
