Abstract:

A study was conducted to develop computer software pertinent to the development of a Navy Assault Boat Coxswain Trainer. Existing equations of an LCM6 medium landing craft have been combined with a mathematical representation of a wave-beach environment in a real-time digital computer program. The study used a Xerox Sigma 7 computer at the Naval Training Equipment Center connected to a boat mockup and experimental visual display generating hardware. The program provides a basis for studies to determine the motion and visual display requirements of an assault boat simulator. Author
