FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ORLANDO, FL, Jan 18, 2016 – 3D perception, Inc. (“3DP”) today announced the signing of a contract to deliver to Fort Rucker, Alabama two additional Northstar™ immersive visual displays for CAE-built UH-72A Lakota Flight Training Devices (FTDs). Since 2013, 3DP has completed three deliveries to Fort Rucker and two to the Western ARNG Aviation Training Site (WAATS) near Tucson, Arizona.

The UH-72A FTD features 3DP’s Northstar™ visual display system (VDS) with a wide 200-degree by 70-degree field-of-view. The completely seamless VDS is automatically aligned and color calibrated via sensors embedded in the screen, expediting and simplifying maintenance procedures.

The UH-72A FTD features a helicopter specific cockpit with the fidelity and performance of a full-flight simulator without the full motion. CAE’s next-generation Medallion-6000 image generator immerses pilots in a high-fidelity synthetic training environment.

The UH-72A FTDs for the U.S. Army are fielded with the CAE-developed Common Database (CDB), enhancing the Army’s ability to leverage existing U.S. Government-owned databases to support their helicopter training requirements.

The CAE-built UH-72A flight training devices have been formally accredited by the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence (USAACE) Directorate of Simulation to certify that the devices can be used to train UH-72A rated crew members in the performance of critical training tasks. The accreditation determines the accuracy and realism of the simulation, and CAE’s UH-72A FTDs have surpassed the performance metrics established for this level of training device, thus allowing the Army to accomplish more training tasks in the UH-72A training devices than originally anticipated.

The UH-72A Lakota Helicopter
Developed by Airbus Group, the UH-72A Lakota is the U.S. Army’s multi-role light utility helicopter. The UH-72A Lakota entered service for the U.S. Army and National Guard beginning in 2007 and more than 340 helicopters have been delivered. The Army and National Guard use the UH-72A Lakota for a range of domestic missions, including training, homeland security, medical evacuation, drug interdiction, disaster relief, and general utility support.

3DP’s Northstar Simulation Display System
3D perception’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.

ORLANDO, FL, April 30 – 3D perception, Inc. (“3DP”), today announced the commissioning of two of its Northstar™ immersive visual display systems for ETC Simulation’s (“ETC”) Airport Rescue and Firefighting vehicle simulators for customers in Austria and South Africa.

3DP’s seamless 180-degree visual display system provides an on-scene view to vehicle operators and commanders. The multi-projector, large field-of-view display provides trainees with lifelike, life-sized engagement, training the driving and operation of an Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (“ARFF”) truck, as well as tactical positioning in the event of an aircraft emergency. The full cab simulators have the same cab as the real Rosenbauer Panther vehicle, including a functional dashboard and center console with controls for the roof and bumper turrets.

“The full cab ARFF simulator allows the airport fire and rescue vehicle operators to build the experience and gain the confidence necessary to perform under extreme conditions in a variety of situations, and ultimately be better prepared for real-life incidents and live-exercises. ADMS-ARFF is a green airport solution, as no fire suppression agents or live burns are involved to acquire the training necessary to operate an ARFF truck, thus saving money, minimizing risk and protecting the environment.” said Lori Bozenbury, Director of Business Development at ETC Simulation.

ORLANDO, FL, April 29 – 3D perception, Inc. (“3DP”) today announced delivery of two of 3DP’s Northstar™ immersive visual display systems for the US Air Force Test Pilot Training School (USAF TPS) at Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California’s Mojave Desert.

In late March, 3DP delivered and installed the two Draco™ Northstar mini-dome systems. These high-resolution devices feature a 1.05 m / 3.4 ft radius spherical screen and a seamless 160° vertical and 60° horizontal field of view, and feature a dedicated heads-up display or “HUD.” Draco domes are 3DP’s small footprint automatically aligning VDS concept, ideal for fast-jet applications, which can be installed in standard office spaces.

“We use these simulators to reinforce concepts taught in the classroom before our students go fly their flight test instructional events,” said Dr. Christopher Cotting, PhD Master Instructor of Flying Qualities at the USAF TPS. “Proper immersion in a simulation environment is key, especially for Handling Qualities education and testing. We also use these simulators to provide synthetic vision for a ground station to fly our remotely piloted aircraft. 3D perception’s Northstar visual display system provides the immersion we require to meet our educational learning objectives and our operational requirements for remotely piloted aircraft.”

USAF Test Pilot School
The mission of the USAF Test Pilot School is to produce highly adaptive, critical-thinking flight test professionals to lead and conduct full-spectrum test and evaluation of aerospace weapon systems. Performing this mission allows the school to fulfill the vision of being the world’s premiere educational and training center of excellence for theoretical and applied flight test engineering.
