Paper Abstract

Northrop's capability and experience in flight simulator development utilizing closed-loop visual and motion systems has been applied in major aircraft programs for over a decade. Although our first generation of flight simulators would seem rather crude com-pared to todays standards, it was nevertheless a beginning. The development of wide angle visual display systems at Northrop will be reveiwed in terms of chronology beginning with hardware development history and leading into a discussion of current hardware and future development plans.
