Abstract:

Among the methods available for investigating in detail the performance of real or hypothetical fighter aircraft systems are a spectrum of simulation techniques ranging from pure computer modeling, on the one hand, to flight tests simulating combat operations, on the other. Intermediate between these techniques, in several senses, is simulation involving one or more pilots on line with a computer and display system, flying simulated aircraft in real time. Although all three classes of technique involve varying degrees of simulation, for ease of expression they are referred to here as modeling, simulation, and flight testing. Author
