FlightSafety International has introduced its new VITAL 1150 image generation system designed for use with its immersive mixed reality system, the company announced on 15 April.

The system is an improved version of VITAL 1100. The VITAL 1150 image generation system can dynamically adjust projector features in real-time in conjunction with image adjustments within the image generator which provides improved night and NVG environments. VITAL 1150 supports multiple classes of NVG equipment and drives dedicated infrared channels when paired with compatible projectors.

VITAL 1150 can reduce normal rates of 120Hz with up to 8K resolution. The system features new PC hardware and graphic processor platforms to process and display scenes at higher speeds and resolutions that provides better visual quality throughout the entire flight envelope encountered during training.

The system incorporates advanced rendering techniques for enhanced weather scenarios including new cloud simulations using specialised elliptical shading that improves the 3D visual effects for added realism. It is also designed to bypass a normally required host and directly connect and then interact with the network protocols used in distributed mission operations.
