Abstract : This study examined the design specification for a wide-angle infinity display system with minimal distortion, convergence, dipvergence, and collimation errors for use on wide-body-aircraft simulators. The report includes a recommended final design specification; a survey of potential fabrication technologies for projector, screen and large mirrors; an approach to fabrication of a large display system; and finally, assembly and alignment techniques of mirror segments for a large display. (Note: Dipvergence refers to vertical movement of eyes up and down as opposed to side to side.) (Author)
