Abstract:

A vehicle simulator for training purposes enables the trainee to observe diurnal effects through a simulated thermal sight by the utilization of a variety of paints whose pigments are selected based on their reflectivity to known wavelengths of light. A lamp bank is provided to illuminate a modelboard with various hues so painted as to provide reflectivity corresponding to thermal images. A monochrome television camera mounted on a movable gantry supplies images of said modelboard to a display in the vehicle simulator.
