TIME-DELAY PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED IN INTEGRATING THE ADVANCED SIMULATOR FOR UNDERGRADUATE PILOT TRAINING

An advanced Computer Image Generation (CIG) visual system has been integrated with an advanced Flight Training Research Simulator. The integration design was the first developed for integrating a CIG visual system with a sophisticated flight simulator. There was much concern for the unique CIG system transport delay, and techniques were developed which proved to be quite successful in compensating for the majority of this delay. However, not enough concern was given to previously unrecognized and unreported excessive motion system delays which were encountered during final integrated system tests. The integration scheme and the impact of iteration rates, visual and motion system delays, and delay compensation on visual and motion cue coordination as perceived by pilots are presented.
