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 three-dimensional 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 training video tapes were produced and delivered to the 325 Weapons Controller Training Sqaudron (formerly the USAF Interceptor Weapons School), where they are being incorporated into the training syllabus. Volume I of this paper provides an overview and summary of the project. Volume II provides a Users Guide to the research and development microcomputer system. (Author)
