Abstract : Control Central is the name given to a radar simulator designed and constructed for psychological research. It is used with the plan-position type of radar indicator which gives range and bearing information to the observer. This paper describes the method of generating a simulated radar target having its position and many of its characteristics controlled. Each of the integral units of Control Central is also described in some detail. (Author)
