Paper Abstract

The LinkNVS tm(Link Night Visual System) is a compact, low-cost flight simulator attachment which generates visual scenes. The visual images are computed at 30 frames per second by digital computational implementation. The visual scenes are displayed by means of a color CRT operating in the stroke writing (calligraphic) mode. The computed display changes dynamically in concert with the real-time progress of the simulated aircraft through its flight plan. The NVS can be configured to provide up to eight independent view channels by means of subsystem modules. Each of the eight windows will display up to 2,000 light points computed for the dynamic airport display scene.
