The objective of the study was to examine the technical and cost feasibility of using a television instrumented remotely piloted helicopter RPH as part of a closed-loop helicopter crew Nap-of-the-Earth flight training system, coupled with a Synthetic Flight Training System. The study analyzed and determined the visual, display, motion system and computational hardware and software requirements for the SFTS. Requirements for the RPH airframe and avionics were developed. Evaluation of the QH-50D determined that it had sufficient performance capabilities to serve as the RPH.
