The TADS/PNVS monitor features include two black-and-white CRTs. Use of two
CRTs permit the instructor to monitor the FLIR sensor imagery (IHADSS, TADS/PNVS)
and symbology being viewed by both pilot or CPG. The visual system permits the
pilot/CPG to view one sensor display at a time; the instructor monitors are
d. The TADS/PNVS monitors are above the IOS CRT (figure 2-2). The TADS/PNVS
pointing information is displayed on CRT page 160. This page provides information
related to the direction the TADS, PNVS or IHADSS being monitored is pointing; that
is, the line-of-sight of the trainee using the sensor. The display indicates
line-of-sight in degrees left or right of center, indicating the up or down view
angle, and which field-of-view is being used: Z = zoom, N = narrow, W = wide, and
M = medium.
e. Instructors can use their displays to monitor/observe the pilot trainee PNVS
FLIR scene, to monitor/observe the CPG trainee TADS FLIR scene, to obtain data from
the symbology displayed on the pilot/CPG TADS/PNVS displays, and to provide mission
assistance to trainee during independent mode training.
7-22. TRAINEE CONTROL PANEL. These panels provide the trainees with limited con-
trol of simulator functions. The panel is located on the left canopy rail (figure
cockpit and contains six switches. These switches
are identical to,
and perform the same functions as, the respective switches on the IOS consoles.
7-23. OBSERVER COMMUNICATIONS PANEL. The observer communications panel is on the
rear wall adjacent to the observer station (figure 7-5). Included on the panel are
an OBS HDST VOL knob to control the observer headset volume, and five communication
switchlights that are explained in paragraph 7-6. A separate headset jack, with an
audio preamplifier, is mounted in the ceiling above and behind the observer's
chair. The observer COMM panel and headset allows the observer to communicate with
the trainee and the instructor at all times.
7-24. IOS CRT SCREEN DISPLAY. The instructor data graphics CRT display is com-
posed of five areas that provide various types of information necessary for moni-
toring and controlling the simulation.
a. Main Page Area (Figure 7-6). This constitutes the largest portion of the CRT
page and is used to display pages of alphanumeric and graphic information. Pages
are displayed in logical groupings containing common subject matter and are addres-
sed via the data entry keyboard. These logical groupings make up a general index.
each having its own detailed mini index that lists the contents of that group. All
directly addressable CRT pages have a unique 3-digit identifier or page number.
(Table 7-3 lists
and their respective page numbers.)
(1) CRT pages fall into two categories: editable, or modifiable; and nonedit-
able, or fixed. The editable/modifiable pages contain listings that may be used as
sets in their entirety and/or listings for which specific selections or modifica-
tions may be made. A page categorized as editable/modifiable has a reference line
number for each of the items on that page that can be changed by the instructor.
Examples of such pages are:
Initial condition (IC) sets (pages 101 - 145)
Current conditions (CC) (pages 150 - 151)
parameter freeze (page 160)
Playback control (page 470)
