This technical memorandum summarizes the present state-of-the-art in both the engineering and behavioral aspects of simulation technology. It is this information which the Calspan technical personnel are using in the formulation of recommended requirements for B-1 training devices. Although the primary emphasis is on simulation used in training applications, the technology derived from other applications is often pertinent and its relevance to training is integrated into the discussions and assessments contained herein. This memorandum is not to be considered as a textbook on simulation and its usage, but rather, as a description of the important factors that impact upon the training device requirements for the B-1 training systems. The implications of the state-of-the-art in simulation are discussed as they pertain to fulfilling the training objectives of the B-1. The simulation technology presently available does not appear to be constraining factor with respect to the Defensive Systems Operator DSO training devices. The major problems involving the DSO station simulation are not hardware concerns, but rather are in determining the multitude of logical contingencies involved in realistics scenarios.
