Abstract : High performance aircraft present the problem of providing navigational information to a pilot (or navigator) in a quick, clear and concise manner. This requirement has led to the development of the concept of the moving map display - for use in the cockpit of an aircraft - which is driven directly by the aircraft's navigational equipment. This report describes work accomplished during the course of a one-year program to design and construct a laboratory demonstration model of a moving map display system, using a concept which employs holographic storage and display techniques. This exploratory program was the second in a proposed series of programs leading to the generation of an advanced moving map display system. (Author)
