Following the acquisition of a passive multi-degree-of-freedom simulator by the Ware Simulation Section, Rock Island Arsenal, Rock Island, IL, the Franklin Research Center was contracted to design and to make the necessary modifications for conversion from a passive to an activated simulator. This report outlines and details the design philosophy used for providing programmable motions, vibrations, and spring rates required for activating the passive simulator. This report also documents the changes required in the hydraulic power supply, the mechanical changes to the yaw and pitch gimbals, and the electronic changes to the spring rate controller.
