Abstract : The AN/ASG-21-T1 Fire Control System Trainer provides a realistic physical and functional simulation of the fire control operator's station in the B-52H aircraft. The trainer provides the environment for training fire control operators in the normal and emergency procedures of operation of the AN/ASG21 Fire Control System. The trainer is composed of three major assemblies: (1) Trainee Station, (2) Console Operator (Instructor) Station, and (3) Card Preparation Work Station. The Trainee Station employs an off-the-line AN/ASG-21 Control Indicator and a FCS control unit. Other equipments normally contained in the Fire Control Operator's Station aboard the B-52H are also provided. The Instructor's Station contains all of the electronics necessary to simulate the various video signals displayed on the FCS operator's radar indicator. It also includes a digital computer, power supplies, control circuits and facilities for remote monitoring of the trainee's performance. A Card Preparation Work Station is provided, consisting of work desk, card punch machine for punching IBM type digital programing cards and miscellaneous other data and equipment employed in the preparation of the cards.
