Abstract:

Microcomputers are no longer toys, they are cheap computers. This project proved that a commercial, off the shelf microcomputer could run a simulator used in an Air Force Technical Training school. Research through the Defense Documentation Center now the Defense Technical Information Center showed nothing comparable in DoD. Commercial producers of trainers were also unable to show equivalent capability. A reproducible method to evaluate microcomputers is shown and used. Circuits are shown and discussed which provide control of the trainer and implement outputs. An invention is detailed which produces waveshapes for oscilloscope under program control. Software is provided, with full documentation, that generates waveshapes for the invention above which can then run independent of computer inputs.
