Abstract
The report describes a prototype training device for TOW 2 gunners. The TOW Video Interactive Gunnery Simulator (TVIGS) was developed by DCIEM to demonstrate the application of an interactive video system invented to train operators of direct fire weapon systems. The system capitalizes on commercial video products and microcomputer technologies to achieve perceptual fidelity at low cost. The approach could also be used for other direct fire weapon systems. The key component of the device is its visual system. Video imagery from a variety of sources can be used for gunnery training. Thermal scenes can be simulated and fog and smoke can be superimposed upon background video imagery.
