Abstract : The design study of an automatic monitoring system for flight simulators is presented. System basic functions are: (1) recording and playback, and (2) evaluation and scoring. The recording and playback facilities allow the recording of pertinent parameters of a simulated flight mission. The recording of any part or all of the mission can be played back into the flight simulator for re-enactment at any desired time. Objective evaluation and scoring of the trainee is accomplished by comparison of monitored parameters to the programmed criteria. Student errors in performance are printed by the device onto a cue sheet readily accessible to the instructor. Functional flexibility, the degree of automation required, size, and complexity of the simulator to be monitored are the factors that most affect the design. (Author)
