Abstract : The patent application relates to weapon simulators and more particularly to a laser, automatic weapon firing simulator for training of gunners on automatic burst fire weapons such as a machine gun. Elevation and azimuth of the weapon is used to determine the line of aim at the time of firing. The system then delays the feeding of this data of position to an electro-optical system which directs the laser beam such that the laser's line of aim is always a delay time after the line of aim of the weapon. The result is that the trainee does not get advance information on a prior firing, i.e., immediate feedback, but must operate under the actual delay of missile flight time which would be encountered in the use of live ammunition.
