3D Perception delivers first in a series of Full Mission Flight Simulator Displays to Indian Air Force for Pilatus Aircraft
ASKER, Norway, December 4, 2014 – 3D perception AS (“3DP”), today announced that the aircraft manufacturer Pilatus Aircraft Ltd., for whom 3DP is a supplier of display solutions for its flight simulators for the Indian Air Force, recently received final acceptance for the first Full Mission flight Simulator (FMS) at the Air Force Academy at Dundigal, India.
Indian newspaper, The Hindu, recently described the simulator:
“As one sits in the cockpit of a Pilatus aircraft in the simulator, which generates a real-life like environment, it is just a matter of seconds before the pilot goes from being in a room to flying the trainer aircraft. The virtual arena is complete with sensitive graphic screens to give trainees a ‘real’ experience, before they actually fly one of the 40 aerial machines in the Air Force Academy at Dundigal.”
The complete article from The Hindu can be found here:
The display solution delivered by 3DP consists of simulation grade, precision digital projectors, 3DP’s display processor, 3DP’s instrumented screen elements, as well as night scenario capabilities, multi-channel automatic image alignment and color calibration. This installation is the first in a series of simulators and 3DP is looking forward putting the rest of the visual display systems into operation in the near future.
3DP’s advanced Northstar™ visual display solution combines an advanced rack-mount multi-projector display processor, nBox™, with 3DP Certified Projectors™ and image auto-alignment technologies in the form of Aurora™ sensor-instrumented smart screens, or StarScan™, a screen-independent, precision 3D scanner and imager. Northstar is Image Generator (IG) independent and requires no software on or modification to the users IG.
3DP is demonstrating their complete Northstar solution in Orlando, Florida, from December 1st through 5th at I/ITSEC, the world’s largest yearly simulation industry conference. More info on I/ITSEC at: www.iitsec.org
