Abstract:

The Remotely Piloted Vehicle Mission Control System RMCS Simulation Program is a real-time, interactive, graphics program which simulates a hypothetical mission control center. It provides a means for analyzing the effects of numerous variables on the operator performance of a five-man team whose task is to control up to 35 Remotely Piloted Vehicles RPVs through the enroute, terminal, and return phases of a simulated strike mission. The enroute and return phases are performed by four operators seated at IBM 2250 Display Units. The terminal phase is simulated by a single operator who controls a remotely located terrain table which is interfaced to his control station through an IBM 1827 Data Control Unit.
