Abstract:

The report presents the results of a study to determine the feasibility of developing a visual simulation system for meeting the training requirements for operators of a variety of surface vehicles. The vehicles considered were a tank MBT-70, an air cushion vehicle SKMR-1, a hydrofoil PCH-1 and an amphibious assault personnel carrier LVTP-7. Included in the report is an analysis of the visual system requirements for these vehicles, a state-of-the-art investigation of visual system techniques, and the formulation of a recommended visual system. The recommended system combines a camera model approach for generating land scene with a scanned transparency approach for generating waves, the latter being inset into the land imagery. Author
