Abstract : The patent concerns a visual system for use with a waterborne vehicle-operator trainer. The system has the capability of displaying both shore and sea scenes. A first camera model system provides the shore scenes in color to a television display which has its fast scan in the vertical direction. A second camera model system comprising a black and white camera-probe and a model containing coded wave elevation information develops a video signal which is used to modulate the vertical scan of the display to simulate waves for portions of the scene where waves are present.
