Paper Abstract

A cost effective and supportable color visual system has been developed to provide the necessary visual cues to United States Air Force B-52 bomber pilots training to become proficient at the task of inflight refueling. This camera model visual system approach is not suitable for all simulation applications, but provides a cost effective alternative to digital image generation systems when high fidelity of a single movable object is required. The system consists of a three axis gimballed KC-l35 tanker model, a range carriage mounted color augmented monochrome television camera, interface electronics, a color light valve projector and an infinity optics display system.
