Its chief manufactures are electronic, water-analysis, and water-treatment equipment; motor vehicles; construction materials; and machinery. Iowa State Univ.  Research Center, Lee now runs a business conducting human factors research supporting the design and evaluation of aerospace, medical, and computer technologies. Here he describes the key component technologies of flight simulators flight simulator, device providing a controlled environment in which a flight trainee can experience conditions approximating those of actual flight. A simulator generally consists of an enclosure housing a working replica of the interior of the cockpit of an  and how they support the pilot's experience of flight and performance of specific tasks. He also discusses the capacity and limitations of the pilot in areas that are directly relevant to the design of flight simulation devices, how flight simulation technology is applied in aviation, and studies of the effectiveness of the technology.
