Abstract:

Previous studies and research have determined that the aircraft handling problem aboard our modern aircraft carriers is needlessly complicated by inadequate communication and information handling. This study develops an interactive computer graphics system which would improve information handling. The proposed system will not make the logical decisions of the handling problem, but rather will assist handling and maintenance personnel in the presentation and exchange of aircraft information. The study includes a discussion of previous efforts in this area, a basic description of interactive computer graphics and presently available hardware, a description of the entire proposed system to be implemented onboard the carrier, and a computer graphics program that realistically simulates the workings of the displays proposed in the above mentioned system.
