1) Installed in 1974 at Williams AFB in Arizona it was the first example of a professional military simulator with multiple displays, multiple CGI channel "butted" display system, which was the model for most simulators built during the 1980s and 1990s. (like The Tactical Edge by Evans & Sutherland in 1981). The field of view was divided between multiple CRTs surrounding the pilot, each fed with a signal from each put signal from an independent but synchronized computer image generator. By aligning the boundary of one display with that of the adjacent, it gave the feel of a continuous image.

2) Sumulation of Cessna T-37 plane.

3) Simulator used prerecorded CGI demonstrations, record/playback, freeze\initialization,and graphic feedback displays.

4) Computer-generated imagery (CGI) is the application of computer graphics to create or contribute to images in art, printed media, video games, films, television programs, commercials, videos, and simulators. The visual scenes may be dynamic or static, and may be two-dimensional (2D), though the term "CGI" is most commonly used to refer to 3D computer graphics used for creating scenes or special effects in films and television.The term 'CGI animation' refers to dynamic CGI rendered as a movie. The term virtual world refers to agent-based, interactive environments. For more watch Rendering of a planned highway (1961).
