Abstract:

A training device for simulated anti-armor weapons system utilizes a microprocessor system to perform a number of functions including solving dynamic flight equations of a simulated missile and determining the gunners aiming error. A miniature terrain board having a miniature target with infrared source provides the aim point for a gunner using a simulated weapon launcher. An infrared sensing device mounted in the weapon provides input to the microprocessor while a CCTV provides an instructor with a gunners view. Sound, visibility, and recoil associated with weapons use are simulated by peripheral devices under the control of the microprocessor. The gunners aiming error and view are displayed in real time on an instructors console which provides for instructor input and recording of gunner performance.
