Figure B Instructor console B Instructor Console

The trainer programs the DGT instructor console (Figure B-3), which has two carrying handles.

a. Monitor. The instructor console displays the mission scenario on its own monitor as well as on the student viewer. This allows the trainer to watch the student's actions during mission execution. Afterwards, the trainer can play back and evaluate the student's performance.

b. Front Panel. From the front panel of the instructor console, the trainer controls the volume of his own and the student's headsets (INSTRUCTOR VOLUME and STUDENT VOLUME). The toggle switch on the front panel has three settings:

(1) MICROPHONE/ALL. This setting allows both trainer and student to hear the DGT mission.

(2) ONLY. This setting allows only the trainer to hear the mission.

(3) OFF. This setting is self-explanatory.

c. Rear Panel. The rear panel of the instructor console contains the power switch, indicators, console identification data, fan vents, and power and electronic data transmission receptacles (jacks).

(1) ON/OFF Switch and Indicator. The ON/OFF switch controls power to the instructor console; when the switch is set to ON, the indicator light comes on.

(2) Hour Meter Indicator. The hour meter shows how long the trainer has been in use.

(3) Name Plate. The nameplate identifies equipment.

(4) Fan Assembly. The fan assembly filters and circulates air through the instructor console.

(5) Receptacles. The receptacles (jacks) shown in Table B-1 are located on the rear panel of the instructor console:


Data output to the printer.


Signal interface with the student station sight assembly.


Power input from a 110VAC or 220VAC source.


Power output to the student station sight assembly.


Data input from the mouse.

d. Media. Each DGT comes with its own set of four floppy disks (3.5 inch) and two videodisks (12 inch) (Figure B-4).

(1) Floppy Disks. These are standard 3.5-inch floppy disks.

(a) Program Disk. This disk contains the DGT simulation software.

(b) Diagnostic Disk. This disk contains the self-test for the DGT.

(c) Mission Data Disks. Each of these two numbered floppy disks corresponds to one of the similarly marked 12-inch videodisks.

(2) Videodisks. Two 12-inch videodisks store the DGT's audiovisuals. Each is numbered and color-labeled like one of the two mission data disks. Each videodisk comes in a protective jacket.

The instructor uses the standard communication headset with boom microphone (Figure B-5). This text will simply refer to "the headset." The headset allows the trainer to hear the audio portion of the simulation and to feed back instructions to the student. The headset's 6-foot long cable has two phone plugs that plug into jacks on the instructor console.


The mouse (Figure B-5) is a hand-controlled device the trainer uses to move the cursor on the video monitor. Using the mouse, the trainer controls the cursor, selects options, and controls exercises. To select an option, the instructor positions the cursor on it and clicks the left mouse button once (the right button does not work with this program). The connector on the mouse's 4-foot long cable plugs into a jack on the instructor console.
