Abstract : Background and target image display luminance of the Visual Technology Research Simulator's wide angle screen was measured to define the performance levels used in conducting experiments and demonstrations of the Conventional Takeoff and Landing carrier simulations during 1978-80. Daytime display brightness is typically 4 footlamberts with a contrast ratio of 8:1. Nighttime display brightness is typically 1.5 footlamberts with a contrast ratio of 30:1. These display values are the result of system interaction of TV projector, optics and spherical screen characteristics and projection and viewpoint locations. (Author)
