Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to formulate the major elements of the design of a simulator for the AH-64 Advanced Attack Helicopter AAH. The AAH pilotgunner training requirements were analyzed, and alternative approaches to satisfying these requirements were considered. Technological areas examined included cockpit configuration, motion and visual system options, computer system requirements, weapon delivery systems, aerodynamic and engine simulation, and instructional system capabilities. The six development objectives of AR 71-1 were adhered to and specific recommendations were made, proposing a training system composed of a full-mission trainer and a part-task trainer. Author
