Abstract:

Three functions must be interfaced with the responsive target computer program for this target to operate in real time. First the program must be tied to a real clock. The integration interval employed in the program is 0.1 second, thus a 0.1-second clock rate must be provided to the system. Second, the position, velocity, and attitude information concerning the state of the opponent must be provided to the program. The information will be obtained from analog voltages ranging from -10 to 10 volts that will be read into the Pacer 100 by an analog to digital converter. Third, the position and attitude of the target must be presented to the pilot in the opponent aircraft. These variables will also be provided as analog voltages and require a digital to analog conversion step. Author
