Abstract : Results are described of a study of known approaches to generation and presentation of a non-programmed wide angle television display for presenting a synthetic real world envionment to a trainee. Both feasible and non-feasible approaches were examined as well as unconventional means of obtaining a television picture such as dark trace tubes, storage tubes and rapid access intermediary systems. This study ha shown tha presently available material, processes and techniques are not in themselves cpable of generating a visual presentation of sufficient angle of view or adequate resolution and brightnes for most wide angle training requirements. Recommendations for further wor are made to overcome these limitations by techniques such as multiple pickup and projection unit and the development of new tube types. (Athor)
