Future Potential and Requirements of Digital Simulation 670301

A very large increase in the ratio of digital computer capabilities (memory capacity and operating speed) to computer cost is forecast in the next decade. This paper considers a number of aspects of the design, construction and use of modern digital flight and space trainers with the thought of exploitation of presently unobtainable computer capacity to maximize simulator usefulness and to minimize total simulator costs. New methods of visual and radar simulation made feasible only through the use of super computers are discussed.
