NVG Virtual Simulation System For Training Crewmembers

Night Flight Concepts Offers Training In A Wide Variety Of Scenarios

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 solution package.
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 Sources.
  • 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 states.
  • 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 profiles.
