Abstract:

Phase B mechanized a unique six degree-of-freedom, fast-time, predictor model of the F-4 aircraft and a six degree-of-freedom, forward-looking, predictor cockpit display, based upon the requirements established in Phase A. A base-line display for comparison with the predictor was mechanized as a closed-circuit, gantry-driven, TV system viewing a scale model of a carrier with deck and edge lights, and FLOLS, illuminated in scale to appear as they would at night. The displays of both systems were mounted in the cockpit of a static simulator at Point Mugu programmed for F-4 flight and control dynamics. Informal trials were run with research staff and carrier-qualified pilots to evaluate realism of the displays amount of training required sensitivity and reliability of simulation and measurement systems and recording systems, including a computer program to reduce the data.
