Abstract:

A prototype test system has been developed for use with a Singer Co. GAT-1 flight trainer that permits assessment of a pilots ability to track a target which moves about three separate axes vertically altitude, laterally, and in depth range. A low-cost laser-generated visual display and rear projection screen was used to create the visual tracking task which is crudely akin to aerial refueling or formation flying. Performance was assessed on-line in terms of 1 integrated absolute tracking error and 2 time on target, by using a bench top analog computer EAI model TR-10 and simple hardware.
