Paper Abstract

The need for wide-angle displays apparently projected to infinity has led to the development of a series of systems which amount to wide-angle-erecting eyepieces with large exit pupils. Characteristics of systems with fields of view of 110° and exit pupils 12 inches in diameter are discussed. The application of these systems and the various techniques of image generation for the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and LEM simulator programs are described. Realistic and accurate simulation of spacecraft out-of-the window displays of the Celestial Sphere, Rendezvous and Docking and Earth and Moon Orbital and Landing Views are included as image generation techniques.
