Abstract:

A limited field-of-view LFOV visual system for the F-15 flight simulator FS - developed and built by Goodyear Aerospace Corporation - would greatly increase the already proven training capability of the FS. The current F-15 FS, having no visual system, readily handles all its assigned instrument and emergency procedure training tasks. The LFOV system - capable of adapting to cost parameters - will enhance the overall training capability of the F-15 FS by adding out-the-window visual cues. The overall training capability, particularly in the visual air-to-air and air-to-ground modes, is expected to be significantly improved by the addition of the LFOV system. The data base for the LFOV system is intended to support air-to-ground, air-to-air, and normal airfield operations. Air Force instructor pilots will evaluate the LFOV for a three-month period by following specific evaluation plans and by using strict grading procedures. Author
