Advance Preview Of Immersive Sim At Heli-Expo
CAE says it plans to launch a family of helicopter mission
simulators for the civil helicopter market, the company announced
Monday at the Helicopter Association International (HAI) Heli-Expo
conference. The first CAE 3000 Series simulator will be available
for training by the summer of 2010.
CAE is demonstrating a fixed-based version of the new CAE 3000
Series at the show.
"This new CAE simulation capability offers unprecedented realism
for helicopter-specific mission training, including offshore,
emergency medical services, law enforcement, long line,
high-altitude, corporate, and other operations," said Jeff Roberts,
CAE's Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and
Services. "The CAE 3000 Series solution is designed for a market
which currently conducts most training in the aircraft and has been
seeking new ways to improve safety and efficiency. We have
developed the product family with extensive input from our
Helicopter Advisory Board, which includes pilots, operators,
manufacturers, and insurers."
The CAE 3000 Series is designed to address emerging global
standards for helicopter flight simulation training devices (FSTD)
in development by an international working group sponsored by the
ICAO. The new CAE helicopter mission simulators will meet or exceed
current regulatory requirements, including FAA and European Joint
Aviation Authorities (JAA) Level D or other levels according to
customer training needs.
The CAE 3000 Series features CAE's three-degree-of-freedom
vibration platform, as well as a CAE Tropos-6000 visual system with
direct projection dome, high-definition commercial off-the-shelf
projectors, and up to a 220-degree horizontal by 80-degree vertical
field of view display system with chin window coverage.
CAE says it is the first to incorporate artificially intelligent
human form and moving vehicle dynamic simulation for civil
helicopter training tasks and mission scenarios.
