Abstract : The Air Force Avionics Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio uses a digital computer model of an air defense command and control system in its analysis programs. The model requires extensive input data which must be painstakingly and tediously generated for each new system simulation. The imputs involve locating air defense elements, such as radar sites and air bases, planning aircraft flight profiles, and targeting weapon delivery. By using an interactive graphics program, the analyst could easily view sites, check radar coverages, draw flight profiles, and so on. Program FLIGHT was developed to graphically assist in the generation of input data for the digital computer model.
