Abstract : With the increase in speed of moving vehicles there is a growing need for rapid, easy to interprete display of information concerning its dynamic state. With growing equipment stability a remedy can grow out of research and application of computer aided information presentation, especially the production of proper displays. While all information can be made to correspond to familiar schemes as close as desired new approaches to the general problem must be sought to find an improved information presentation. This study is concerned with the application of computer generated graphics for one or more display consoles for aid in the operation of the vehicle. In the first chapter a major aspect of the general program is chosen for a demonstration: a 'flight vehicle to destination' situation is subjected to an experimental investigation. A general purpose computer with a graphics terminal that has become available just recently has been chosen for the study. Thereby implicitly a measure of the capability to perform a real time on line job is obtained. (Author)
