Abstract:

A stereoscoopic, dynamic display of re-entry bodies is described. Information for the display is generated by a simulation program on an IBM 7094 and is fed to a D.E.C. PDP-1 computer. The PDP-1 drives a D.E.C. Type 340 CRT display which is viewed through a special device by a systems analyst. The body of the report gives the philosophy of the need for on-line analysis and a general description of requirements for the display. Appendices give details about the optical viewer, the mathematics of stereoscopic viewing and a set of operational instructions for the display.
