Abstract : A system for facilitating the training of a trainee to operate a target rangefinder. The system includes a slide (or film) projector for projecting a battlefield scene including one or more targets onto a viewing screen. The slide includes data annotated thereon corresponding to the range of the target; the target range is communicated to an operating console. A rangefinder simulator includes a means for generating a laser beam. In operation, the trainee sights the target, sets the range gate and fires the laser beam. When the laser beam hits the target, the console displays the proper range data which is then compared to the range set on the simulator by the trainee. (Author)
