Abstract:

Some of the findings of AGARD FMP WG10 are discussed. Image detail and resolution are two characteristics of visual simulation systems which seem to be significant in determining pilot performance in a simulator. MTFA has been found to be a reliable metric for predicting target acquisition performance, however, present measurement techniques are not suitable for moving imagery. Reliable techniques for the measurement of both image detail and resolution need to be developed. Apparent motion as opposed to real motion is also discussed. Neither the effect of visual simulation characteristics on apparent motion nor the effect of apparent motion on pilot performance are well understood and require further research.
