DIRECT FIRE SIMULATION SYSTEM.
Final rept., 24 Jan-15 Oct 66,
STANFORD RESEARCH INST MENLO PARK CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
A direct fire simulation system is shown to be essentially a communication system. Available techniques all use one or more bands within the electromagnetic spectrum. Basic techniques examined both theoretically and experimentally are the use of a microwave beam, a laser beam, and an omnidirectional infrared beacon. The infrared beacon technique is the only one capable of immediate procurement, and a system using this approach is outlined. Specific component development is recommended for the microwave beam and laser beam techniques. The direct fire simulator requirements are discussed in detail and major changes in the approach and use of DFS systems are recommended in order to make such systems feasible. Author
