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 report applies to the second phase of a four-phase program implementing the real-time radar simulator. Phase 2 covers presentation of dynamic displays of cultural data, using a scan converter system and a large-scale general-purpose digital computer. The report describes the mathematical aspects of the radar model and specifically details the hardware and software required to construct the Phase 2 system. (Author)
