This investigation included a survey of manned flight vehicles of the period 1960 to 1970. Display requirements were tabulated and display programming methods were evaluated. A study was made of mechanisms and methods for providing an economical, reliable, and flexible system of dynamic mockup displays which would allow realistic evaluation of a crew station and its related equipment by engineering, design, and flying personnel. The use of pre-recorded magnetic tape is recommended for the most effective display programming at lowest cost. An inexpensive servo drive mechanism with synchro output is considered to be most applicable as a universal drive.
