Abstract : A simulated three-dimensional computer graphics display system was developed to address issues critical to the training of Air Force air weapons controllers; primarily those training issues related to air intercept tactics and geometry. The research and development system provided the capability to display and control up to three aircraft in a defined airspace, plus the addition of supplemental graphics to address specific training issues using full-color, raster-scan, animated microcomputer display technology. To transition this technology to the training environment, two video tapes were produced and delivered to the 325th Weapons Controller Training Squadron (formerly the USAF Interceptor Weapons School), where they are being incorporated into the training syllabus. Volume I of this document provides an overview and summary of the project (Final Report). Volume Ii provides a guide to the operation of the research and development microcomputer system (Users Guide). (Author)
