The advanced television systems used in modern visual simulation are widely recognized for their ability to produce highly accurate three-dimensional representations of the observer's visual surround with complete freedom of movement throughout the visual flight realm. Much work has been devoted---with a great measure of success---to the development and refinement of terrain models, optical probes, cameras, special effects generators and virtual image displays. This has resulted in the ready availability of a wide variety of sophisticated, high performance elements that are being used essentially as modular building blocks in the latest visual simulators. This degree of flexibility is particularly advantageous inasmuch as it permits easy adaptation to new requirements without the need for extensive new development.
