Abstract : Identifiers: Hybrid computers. Capabilities of existing simulation technology are discussed and programs for new techniques required for spacecrew training are described. Programs are discussed for the development of new coordinate schemes and generalized aerodynamic and motion equations. The application of special and generalems are discussed, and the evelopment of a real-time digital computer and hybrid analog-digital computers, which appear most promising for uture simulation, is reviewed. The requirements for visual capabilities in future training simulators are presented. These vehicles are expected to include a means for the operator to view the scene on the outside and must include complete simulation for generating this scene. Several prograpurpose analog and digital computers to simulation problems are discussed, and the evelopment of a real-time digital computer and hybrid analog-digital computers, which appear most promising for uture simulation, is reviewed. The requirements for visual capabilities in future training simulators are presented. These vehicles are expected to include a means for the operator to view the scene on the outside and must include complete simulation for generating this scene. Several programs are discussed which are intended to provide segments of the visual simulation capability. (Author)
