United States navy drill, known as the physical drill without arms by Thomas J Sharkey( Book )

2 editions published between 1905 and 1912 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Autonomic physiological data associated with simulator discomfort by J. C Miller( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We report here the development of a physiological monitoring capability for the Army's Crew Station Research and Development Facility (CSRDF) and some preliminary physiological data. The objective this effort was to demonstrate sensitivity of the physiological measures in this simulator to self- reported simulator sickness
Skill Training Using Adaptive Technology: A Better Way to Hover( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program was to determine the feasibility of developing and implementing an automated, adaptive hover training controller based on human performance models and novel feedback techniques for Student Pilots (SPs) in Initial Entry Rotary Wing (IERW) training. The target system for the controller is the Intelligent Flight Trainer (IFT), a hover training research device, operated by the U.S. Army Research Institute, Fort Rucker Field Office, Fort Rucker, Alabama (ARI). This work was conducted between April and August 2000 by Monterey Technologies, Inc. (MTI) with significant consulting from Dr. Anthony P. Ciavarelli of the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California and Mr. Charles Asbury of ThoughtWave, LLC, Torrance, California. Aviation training programs are some of the longest, most costly, and demanding in Army. ARI is continually conducting research to find ways to improve the efficiency and reduce the cost of training SPs to become Army Aviators. The ability to hover a helicopter is one of the fundamental skills required early in the IERW program. At present, IERW is conducted on a training time basis. That is, within a small range of variation, all students receive the same number of hours of training in lock-step fashion. A more efficient training program would be performance based. SPs would advance through the program based on demonstrated individual proficiency. While Instructor Pilots (IPs) have the responsibility to assess performance, it would highly desirable to have automated systems that would adapt the training challenge within a lesson to the current level of the SP's performance and also assess when the SP is capable of advancement to a new lesson or, in some cases, be regressed to a previous lesson
Display of Aircraft State Information for Ambient Vision Processing using Helmet Mounted Displays( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the work performed by Monterey Technologies, Inc. under a Phase 2 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract. The goal of the work was the development and evaluation of a novel head mounted display (HMD) that provide helicopter pilots aircraft state information in a way that allows processing by the ambient visual system. A generic helicopter simulator was built for use as a testbed. Ambient displays were presented in the pilot's peripheral field of view while the pilots performed a series of low speed flight maneuvers. The characteristics of the ambient displays were manipulated in three separate evaluations. The first evaluation focused on the size, shape, and density of the objects in the ambient display. The second experiment focused on the relationship between longitudinal motion of the aircraft and motion of the ambient objects across the display. The third experiment examined the effect of providing a horizon. In general, the presence of the ambient displays resulted in improved performance for some, but not all, flight tasks. Detailed results of these studies and recommendations for future research on the effects of ambient displays on pilot performance are presented
Madison Sq. Garden( Visual )

1 edition published in 1932 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In New York, Doc Williams is a manager/trainer devoted to his two young trainees, wrestler Brassie Randall and middleweight fighter Eddie Burke. Impressed by Doc's honest approach to sports, the president of Madison Square Garden, William Carley, offers Doc the dream job of 'matchmaker' for the venue. Doc reluctantly turns down the position when he finds out he could no longer manage Brassie and Eddie because it would be a conflict of interest. Knowing how much this position means to Doc, Brassie and Eddie leave Doc, telling him they are tired of his overbearing management. They take up with a crooked manager, 'Honest John' Miller, who works with racketeer Sloane in fixing fights. Sloane wants revenge against Doc, who refused to align himself with Sloane. When Eddie has established a name for himself, Miller arranges with Doc for Eddie to fight at the Garden. In the meantime, he and Sloane's men spread the word to newspaper reporters that Doc agreed to let Eddie fight out of favoritism. Eddie develops a swelled head and goes 'soft' due to a lack of training and too many parties. Both Bee, Eddie's girl friend, and thickheaded Brassie sense something is wrong, but Eddie has become too conceited to take notice of their concern. As the Garden's board of directors breathe down Doc's neck, the evening of the fight arrives. Unknown to Eddie, Miller is working with his opposition, McClune, so that Eddie will lose. He slathers McClune's hands with plaster that will harden by the third round, so that Eddie will be pummeled into losing. Eddie suffers a terrible beating, but when Doc relinquishes his job so he can help Eddie in the ring, Eddie continues the fight until McClune is declared the winner. Later Doc sees the plaster being removed from McClune's glove and realizes why Eddie's ribs were broken. He angrily gathers together former sports heroes who now work at the Garden, and they storm Sloane and Miller's place, beating all the thugs into submission. Reporters print the truth about the fight, and Doc and Eddie's names are cleared. In the end, Eddie and Bee marry and head to Niagara Falls for their honeymoon. ... According to the pressbook, the character of the president of the Garden was modelled after the real-life president at that time, William F. Carey"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
