Abstract: If you have ever tried to use a map while driving or flying, you will have some understanding of the current need for dynamic chart displays using servo-motored charts. It is difficult to manipulate a map in the limited space, and by the time you locate yourself you may already have passed your point of interest. Now, instead of normal touring or cruising speeds, consider the problem of the Mach I pilot on a military mission moving at the rate of one mile per each five seconds at low altitude. To alleviate this situation, three basic chart display systems have been developed for aircraft. Each display method was designed for specifle requirements, and poses special logistic problems. Let us consider briefly the three basic airborne display methods with their chart requirements
