Paper Abstract

Great effort is directed to the improvement of visual fidelity in the complex and detailed displays needed for training programs. The aim of technology is to create an eye limited display suitable to the requirements for advanced training and maintenance of skill operations. Such requirements specify real world (or near real world) quality in the visual displays, as well as a complex set of integrated cuing. While the field of view requirmenets are set by the mission scenarios, structures, and performance (i.e. aircraft stability), the resolution requirements are determined by the visual performance parameters at the various visual task levels (detection, recognition, etc.). Brightness requirements are more complex, interacting with contrast, color and level of detail, as well as resolution (and usually as a trade off with field of view). Human psychophysical parameters impact all such requirements. This paper discusses the display parameters necessary to present an eye limited (real world level of acceptance) scene to the observer, and since total compliance is presently difficult to attain, to provide "acceptable" levels of display performance for various training programs.
