Abstract

The flight simulator display peripheral, described herein, provides the visual aide necessary for observation of effects due to operator responses for any aircraft simulator which prohibits the observers from occupying space within the cockpit of the simulator.

This display peripheral is provided by a three-dimensional, computer-controlled, motor-driven model which duplicates the angular movements generated by the aircraft simulator by moving a model aircraft mounted within a clear plastic ball.

The display utilizes a Motorola 68000 educational computer board to translate the three aircraft angles. pitch, yaw and roll received from the aircraft simulator via an RS-232C compatible serial asynchronous communication interface at a rate of three hertz, into signals used to drive the stepper motors, mounted in a fixed coordinate frame along the three principal axes, to simulate the aircraft orientation.
