Simulator Plays Through Plane’s On-Board Systems  


edited by Robert H. Williams 

Imagine combat pilots experiencing most of the rigors of aerial warfare as they remain safely parked in their warplanes on the ground. This is being achieved by an embedded training simulation system that was unveiled by Aermacchi and Selex Sensors at the 2005 Paris Air Show. The system so far is geared for Aermacchi M-346 and M-311 trainers.

It offers simulated flight scenarios through onboard multi-function and heads-up displays. The simulator, says a spokesman, is particularly geared for managing sensors and mission systems on combat aircraft, measuring pilot response to the surrounding real and virtual environments and virtually deploying weapons on the aircraft.
