Section V. INITIAL CONDITIONS
8-88. The simulator has 10 preprogrammed initial condition sets that are available for assignment as a setup or reset
point. These are listed on the index display.
8-89. An existing IC set can be modified before actual initialization by using the keyboard. Type the IC page (01 through
10) to be edited, then type ENTER. The selected IC set is then displayed on the auxiliary information display (AID).
Assign this set to 011 by typing 11, SPACE, ENTER. Any or all values can now be changed on a line-by-line basis using
the keyboard. If a value beyond the accepted range is entered for any line, the computer refuses to accept the value,
and an illegal entry message is displayed in the area below the IC set display on the scratchpad.
8-90. Initialization places the simulator within the simulated game area (e. g. , geographic position and altitude) in a
steady-state flight condition from which the trainer can be flown.
Releasing the freeze condition with incorrect rotor percentage can cause motion surges and
injury to personnel.
8-91. THREAT ARRAY PAGES.
8-92. Initialization of the threat environment occurs each time the simulator is loaded on-line. A specific threat condition
is edited using threat array page 025. (See figure 8-14. ) All threat parameters maintain initial and edited values
regardless of instructor inputs to training environment controls for initial conditions; except that MODE goes to 0 (manual)
and ACTIVE goes to 0 (activity levels off).
8-93. Threat array page 025 requires a line and column number for editing. There should be no space between the line
and column numbers. A space should precede only the value to be entered. For example: LINE NO. , COLUMN NO. ,
SPACE, VALUE, ENTER. (Table 8-11 provides threat array page 025 inputs. ) The absence of a specific input value is
equivalent to a zero when editing page 25. When the simulator is in the automatic mode, no editing to the activity level
is allowed. The three closest threats are activated automatically. No more than three threats can be automated in either
the manual or auto mode.
8-94. VISUAL THREATS.
8-95. The visual threats are colocated with EW threats at the LAT/LONG shown on the threat array page 025 (figure 8-
14). The LAT/LONG are representative of locations at the Todendorf gaming area only. When a different field is
selected, the LAT/LONG for the EW threats must be edited by the instructor to locations in the new gaming area. When
a field other than Todendorf is selected, there will not be a visual model of the threat at the new location selected by the
