Abstract:

This report describes the components, architecture, and operations of the ACV-LC real-time digital simulation. The system configuration is described in detail, including the pilot station controls and displays. The mathematical model of the equations of motion, propulsion dynamics, dynamic air flow of the cushions, seaway generation, and the dynamics of the pressure wave vehicle generated waves is completely presented and defined. Descriptions of the model are included for readability.
