Abstract:

There has long been a need in aircraft simulation for a wide angle visual display that will accommodate the entire crew of a large aircraft type such as a bomber or tanker. This study is concerned with the approach and design of a wide angle display for multiple crew members in large aircraft simulators. The study traces the development of a concept from existing simulation methods. Throughout its 180 by 60 deg field of view which accommodates pilot, copilot, and instructor pilot the final design meets most of the requirements of the original specification. Because of its relatively large optical components the fabrication of the display will be of a developmental nature itself. Author
