Luftwaffe (German Air Force), on behalf of Carl Zeiss AG, Jena
Upgrade of a collimated Visual Display System for a Transall Full Mission Simulator at Wunstorf Air Base to high resolution five-channel WQXGA-projection.
The successful co-operation with Zeiss AG for the realisation of eight Eurofighter-FMS– and CT-simulators as well as for three Tornado-Full Mission Simulators (all projects of the main contractor CAE) was continued with the upgrade of a collimated visual display system for the Transall Full Mission Simulator at Wunstorf Air Base.
We have been contracted by Zeiss for the design of the upgrade of the existing collimated visual display system based upon five ZEISS VELVET WQXGA projectors, systems integration including warp & blend as well as installation and calibration using domeprojection.com auto-alignment with semi-automated color calibration.
We realized the upgrade of the collimated display system in only four months from order until final acceptance.
After the upgrade, the Transall pilots are excited about the terrifically raised immersion of the simulation thanks to increased resolution and contrast values, the perfected calibration and the possibility to support realistic night vision by projection of an absolutely black picture. The auto calibration guarantees a drastically reduced maintenance downtime, weekly automated re-calibration to preserve the perfect picture within minutes as well as simplified maintenance in case of hardware trouble.
