Abstract : The report amends the 'Concept Formulation Report, Synthetic Flight Training System (2B24),' to cover research and investigation into the technical and economic feasibility of operating one AH-56 cockpit and one CH-47 cockpit from the SFTS field unit computer/interface system. Computer storage, timing, and iteration rates, interface requirements, and instructor functions are analyzed. Required modifications of the basic-design field unit to accommodate the CH-47A/AH-56 configuration are presented. Cost and scheduling are developed for expanding one of the eight basic-design field units to include all hardware and software required for the AH-56/CH-47 simulation. The cost effectiveness of the expanded unit is analyzed. (Author)
