29 June 1982 Two Years Of Training With The First True Three-Dimensional Simulator
Author Affiliations +
This paper describes the impact on the training of air refueling boom operators by a very unique and a very realistic visual system. This system was conceived and developed by the Farrand Optical Co., Inc. for the Boom Operator Part Task Trainer which was fabricated by the Aeronautical Systems Division of the Air Force Systems Command. The visual system is truly three-dimensional, reproducing all real world angles accurately. Two years of training experience with this simulator has proven the value of realism in simulation when the proper cues are provided.
