Abstract : Effective flight simulation is an important capability for NATO nations, and it will become even more important in the face of reductions in defence budgets. This symposium reviewed the state of the art in flight simulation, in order to identify weaknesses where additional research and development are needed. Presentations dealt with simulation used for engineering and for training, both on the ground and in-flight. Session topics were: Visual and Motion Cueing and Requirements; Advances in Modelling; Simulation in Design and Development-Rotorcraft; Simulation in Design and Development - Fixed Wing and Systems; - Simulation in Training; In-Flight Simulation; Future Applications. The keynote address introduced the symposium, clearly establishing the importance of the topic and its relevance to NATO's requirements. A Technical Evaluation Report is also included. Copies of papers presented at the Flight Vehicle Integration Panel Symposium held in Braunschweig, Germany, 22-25 May 1995.
