Abstract : The thesis investigates the feasibility of simulating the Landing Signal Officer (LSO)/pilot interaction during the approach to a landing on an aircraft carrier. A simulator was created which duplicated the LSO's operational environment through the use of computer-generated visual displays. The LSO and the pilot were placed in this simulated carrier approach environment by (1) displaying a representation of the landing area plus a 'meatball' and angle of attack information to the pilot while (2) simultaneously displaying the aircraft's approach to the LSO. Test results demonstrated the basic feasibility of simulating the LSO/pilot interaction and its application as a research tool in studying LSO models, wave-off techniques and landing techniques.
