The report describes the design and construction of a fixed-base variable-stability simulator facility combined with the task of landing to a carrier or runway. The solution was mechanized on a hybrid computer with the analog computer solving the equations of motion and the digital computer used for storage, control and graphics generation. The display was in the form of a computer drawn picture on a graphics terminal. Control was by a simulated cockpit placed in front of the display and connected to the analog computer. This project was undertaken not as a design of a training aid but rather as a research tool for further studies in control systems, human engineering and aircraft dynamics. Author
