Abstract : A new fully digital visual simulation principle (computer synthesized imagery CSI) is described that uses digitized image components as terrain, target, sight reticle pattern, and shell tracer. By means of a computer controlled composition unit a synthesis of the components is carried out that leads to a realistic image of the battle field. Outlook is given for further upgrades of the moderate cost principle as well as hints for possible applications. (Author)
