Abstract
Through space-flight experience and the development of simulators to meet the associated trainingrequirements, several factors have been established
as
fundamental for providing adequate flightsimulators for crew training. The development of flight simulators from Project Mercury througkthe Apollo
15
mission
is
described in
this
report. The functional uses, characteristics, and de-velopment problems of the various simulators
are
discussed for the benefit of future programs.
