Night Flight Concepts Offers Training In A Wide Variety Of
Night Flight Concepts (NFC) has
developed a state-of-the-art night vision goggle (NVG) crewmember
training program, the core of which is the Night Readiness Virtual
Terrain Board (VTB) Training System. The NVG Crewmember
Training Program and VTB Training System are being offered as part
of Night Flight Concept's "Turn Green…Turn Key" training
The VTB Training System is a NVG simulation platform for training
the capabilities and limitations of NVGs. The VTB is intended to be
a major component of any overall NVG training program. It provides
an immersive environment where the student views a normal unaided
night scene in a blacked out classroom. When viewed through NVGs,
the same scene will be an extremely high definition, true
physics-based NVG representation.
The VTB creates the various NVG attributes that are generally
included in NVG course training objectives such as:
- Effects of Various Illumination Levels on Image Quality.
- Appearance of Power Lines / Estimating Distance to Point Light
- Effects of different atmospheric obscurants, such as rain,
snow, and dust.
The VTB Training System, in addition to extremely high fidelity
rendering of the NVG environment, features slew and zoom capability
(version 2.0) or a "fly-through" mode at different altitudes
(version 3.0). Numerous types of moving models and special
effects are being requested by operators and are currently in
development. These include, but are not limited to:
- Moving vehicles over various terrains such as ambulances and
police patrol vehicles.
- Ships, Oil Platforms and reflections in various sea
- Weather effects and inadvertent entry into IMC.
- Laser effects on the Aircrew.
- Customized scenes for EMS operators such as hospital helipads
and scene landings.
The various features can be grouped and sequenced to form
training modules to fit various customer training programs. The VTB
Training System uses basic core training modules based on civilian
Night Vision Goggle Training Course curriculum, which is based on
the typical emergency medical/rescue service operator flight
