Paper Abstract

In conventional flight simulators information relating to a terrain model board is relayed to the pilot via closed circuit television. The main disadvantage of this type of system is the limited bandwidth, resulting in either a restriction to the pilot's field of view or low resolution. These limitations are most serious, for instance, in ground attack helicopters where both high resolution and large fields of view are required. To overcome the above limitations Rediffusion Simulation Limited have undertaken a Ministry of Defence supported programme of work to develop a wide angle, high resolution, laser visual system.The work presented in this paper represents part of a contract placed upon Sira Institute by Rediffusion Simulation Limited.
