View Full Version : 5-Axis Flight Motion Simulator

Not that it'll mean too much to most of you, but here's (http://www.RudySchneider.com/LightWave_Works/New5Axis.mov) a brief animation I made of a hydraulically-driven machine that's used to run an infrared missile seeker through a simulated flight. It give defense contractors a means to develop, test, and optimize seeker flight control algorithms. The seeker "rides" on the inner three axes, and an infrared scene projector presents a "target" to the seeker. The missile's flight control algorithms actually control the motion of the inner three axes.
