Hvalstad, Norway, 27 November 2017 – 3D perception AS (“3DP”) today announced the delivery of a Northstar™ immersive visual display system (VDS) to the Swedish Defence Material Administration’s (FMV) simulator facility at Malmslätt, under contract with defence and security company Saab.
The newly delivered display system – an upgrade of an older generation system – is a turn-key solution comprised of 3DP’s latest generation display processor, a modular dome screen, and twelve CompactView WQ50 high-resolution WQXGA-resolution projectors with night scenario capabilities. The high-resolution and completely seamless VDS is automatically aligned via sensors embedded in the dome screen, expediting and simplifying maintenance procedures.
The advanced upgrade configuration is a result of a close cooperation between Saab’s team of system architects and 3D perception from concept to final design and implementation to meet the demanding standards for training of pilots as well as serving as a testbed for future editions of the Gripen C/D system. During the simulator commissioning, Saab’s Project Manager, Håkan Brage, expressed his admiration for the speed and accuracy of 3DP’s embedded auto-calibration system and the high-fidelity image. “This upgrade represents a new standard for quality and maintainability in our deliveries.”
