Abstract:

This report is a technical summary of a study which determined the valuable use of dynamic test procedures for evaluating and acceptance testing operational Flight Trainers and Weapon System Trainers. Discussion of the background upon which the decisions as to what parameters should be measured and how closely they should compare to airplane characteristics is given. The implementation of dynamic testing is depicted and then demonstrated by the results of tests performed on both A.C. carrier and D.C. computers of representative simulators. Among the several forms of dynamic testing that could be used, prime emphasis is placed upon transient response techniques for the over-all simulator testing and both transient response and frequency response techniques for evaluating servo components of the simulator computer. Means for determining handling qualities and performance characteristics are displayed. Author
