Abstract : A flight simulator utilized dual visual probes to simulate multisensor imagery from a modelboard data base. The probes are mounted on a common gantry at a fixed reaction to one another corresponding to their aircraft relation. One probe provides a wide angle visual presentation to the simulator cockpit, while the other provides a narrow field of view presentation modified and presented on a small screen CRT as a Forward Looking Infrared or other type display.
