Deliver Pilot Training
More Effectively

Improve Situational Awareness (SA), increase first-time pass rates, and reduce additional re-flights. Eliminate negative training.

Reduce training risk and training acquisition costs.

Intensify training sessions, extend simulation capabilities, and increase pilot experience.

Support of multiple platforms & optional "g" simulation available.

Our Pilot Training System Comprises

Outstanding Visual System

180°FOV – the widest available
on the market

High resolution (8K) giving extreme clarity

Built-in eye-tracking software for data analytics & integrated hand tracking
for cockpit interactions

Motion Platform

A full physical representation
of the actual cockpit environment with network options for multiple devices

Learning content management – tracks student progress

Deployable – packs and moves
in several hours

Realistic & Immersive Environment

Realistic, worldwide database available; permits mission rehearsal when deployed

Full 360° + downward look around

High fidelity synthetic environment
with full threat scenario generation

Current Pilot
Training Challenges

Unrealistic
Training

It is challenging to maintain a simulator’s alignment with a real aircraft. It is more expensive to modify traditional “dome” systems due to the time and money involved. Moreover, fast-changing aircraft technologies make a simulator more cost-effective.

Lack of Training Immersion

Unrepresentative devices reinforce negative learning. Training delivered through a simulator reduces the need for costly in-flight training in a real aircraft.

Aircraft
Dependency

Aircraft are costly to maintain
and their reliability can be problematic to training delivery.

Solution

Highly
Effective

Reduce training failure rates
by teaching in our simulators,
and then consolidate in the air.

Wholly
Immersive

Mixed reality package provides
full immersion enabling emergency handling to mission rehearsal practices.

Additional
Training Capacity

Reduce dependency on aircraft;
our devices operate 24/7,
regardless of weather or aircraft availability.

Benefits of Pilot
Training Programs

An intuitive, modern design, easily understood by trainee pilots

Additional training capacity, if needed, or more effective use of the current training pipeline

The ability to network multiple devices for use as a classroom environment

Track student's progress; see who is practicing what events, in their own time

The ability to be deployed aboard aircraft carriers, to be used for mission rehearsal events

F/A-18 Pilot, Swiss Air Force

The feeling that I got while flying the F/A-18 in full VR mode is really astonishing and so close to reality, to the point that I felt emotionally inside the F/A-18, which is exactly what I need for training purposes and more military and civilian applications.

The Training World
is Changing.

Let Us Help You Evolve Too.

Legacy dome-based simulation systems are expensive to maintain
and ineffective once the “real” aircraft has been modified ahead
of the simulator. Break this cycle by training your pilots in a more effective way that easily and cost-efficiently remains up to date with current training aircraft. Our team of dedicated professionals enables us to react
to your evolving customer requirements in a timely manner while maintaining our flexible, client-centered approach.

Examples of Usage

The U.S. Navy’s pilots often work on aircraft carriers suited for one specific platform. To speed up training, the Navy has begun collaborating with VRgineers
to create next-generation VR simulators, blending VR and the real world into mixed reality.

The pilots can operate and control a real cockpit with their hands within a virtual scene. This grants pilots the authentic look and feel of controlling the cockpit with accurate haptic feedback.

U.S. NAVY

The U.S Air Force chose XTAL headsets to provide a safe, effective and efficient solution to their military pilot shortage. XTAL headsets enable a seamless transition from one aircraft simulator to another, reducing precious time and resources.
Pilots benefit from the ultra-wide field of view and ultra-high-quality images, allowing them to detect objects from long distances and read small details on the control panels, all of which grant them true-to-life training experiences.

U.S. Air Force

NASA's unique demands require novel training methods for astronauts. Their astronauts need to be able to control lunar vehicles remotely.
XTAL headsets facilitate a mixed reality solution with the remote operation of lunar vehicles from the safety of NASA's control room.

Footage shot from the lunar vehicles can be viewed within the headset and acted upon as if the pilots were physically present.
