Abstract:

Onboard Simulation OBS provides computer-generated synthetic targets which are projected in the pilots head-up display HUD. The target changes size and perspective to account for relative position between the target and attacker. OBS was flight test demonstrated in the USAF Integrated Flight and Fire Control IFFC advanced development program. A review of IFFC experience with OBS is provided, including an estimate of direct cost savings of IFFC experience with Obs is provided, including an estimate of direct cost savings attributed to OBS. A decision analysis is performed to assess the use of OBS for operational pilot training in aerial gunnery. Results indicate a training mix of OBS synthetic target encounters balanced with real target encounters can improve the quality of training. Originator-supplied keywords include Synthetic targets Air-to-Air gunnery Air combat training Operational utility and Embedded training.
