Abstract : As a result of conceptual design work on future fighter aircraft and of future Air/Air weapons it was concluded that in future Air/Air combat, especially in the Beyond Visual Range (BVR) scenario, a pilot has to be supported by means of intelligent onboard processing equipment in order to fulfill his most demanding tasks by fully exploiting the weapon system capabilities. An integrated fire and tactical flight director control system was developed for the entire air combat arena by DASA MBB's Military Aircraft Division in its manned simulator facility. A description of the developed system and the used simulator facility is given.
