Abstract : The AMRL RPV System Simulation and Research Program was initiated in April 1973 in response to requirements for support of the design of the man-machine/environment interface of AF RPV systems. The major objectives of the AMRL RPV System Simulation and Research Program are as follows: (1) Perform RPV system design evaluation studies, i.e., evaluate alternative design configurations, assumptions, operating procedures, etc.; (2) assess RPV system effectiveness, i.e., evaluate the expected effectiveness of a given system configuration such as its overall probability of achieving a target, etc.; (3) provide man-machine/environment interface engineering data, i.e., recommend displays, etc.; (4) test bed new technology, i.e., evaluate effectiveness of contractor designed consoles, video bandwidth compression techniques, etc.
