The objective of the study was to evaluate equipment performance and to determine design parameters for a wide-angle non-programmed visual presentation which may be used on a land-based shiphandling simulator for training purposes. A three channel 159 degree H x 53 degree V black and white television system, computer programmed with ships equations of motion, and other associated components, were assembled into an experimental DD692 Class Destroyer mooring system for test, evaluation, and demonstrations. The experimental system was found to be capable of providing visual and motion simulation for certain maneuvers and mooring training situations. A subjective evaluation revealed that the system has a training potential. A detailed specification for trainer requirements was prepared from the results. Author
