Abstract : Previous work performed by Pennsylvania Research Associates, Inc. for the United States Naval Training Device Center demonstrated the technical and economic feasibility of a radar landmass simulator composed of a general-purpose digital computer. The computer operated on digitally stored data and through selected hybrid equipments, including a scan conversion tube, produced the radar video signal. The present investigation relates to the first phase of a four-phase program to implement the real time radar simulator. Phase 1 involves the presentation of static displays of cultural data using a scan converter system. This report discusses the size and shapes of data to be displayed; and indicates tests and test criteria to be used in evaluating the system. (Author)
