Avoidance of midair collisions starts early in the training continuum where pilots conduct formation rendezvous with controlled closure

Avoidance of midair collisions starts early in the training continuum where pilots conduct formation rendezvous with controlled closure

Avoidance of midair collisions starts early in the training continuum where pilots conduct formation rendezvous with controlled closure. The effectiveness of Augmented and Virtual Reality / Gaming Systems can be evaluated by the task of dynamic situations involved in joining on other aircraft, both during low speed rendezvous and the high speed closures associated with air combat maneuvering. Proper recognition ... ...
