Abstract:

The Tactical Combat Trainer TCT, was an Air Force Engineering Development Program to develop two prototype Weapon System Trainers WST for training A-10, F-15, and F-16 pilots from combat. Each prototype was to consist of two visual simulation systems integrated with two previously manufactured Operational Flight Trainers OFT to form a single WST. The TCT prototypes were being developed under contract by the General Electric Company and the Singer Company for a fly off to select a production contractor. Approximately two years into the program, these contracts were terminated due to USAF budget problems. Before termination, however, important studies and developments were completed in the visual simulation area by each contractor. Both Singer and GE proposed an Area-of-Interest AOI visual system and head-slaved AOI infinity image display. The Singer-Link approach was based upon an eye-slaved AOI projected on a dome.
