I/ITSEC 2016: EDM to demonstrate pilot skills
EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, has announced that it will be testing pilot skills with its Mach Loop Challenge at I/ITSEC 2016, it was announced on 16 November.
I/ITSEC (the Interservice / Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference) is a military modelling, simulation and training conference that promotes international and interdisciplinary cooperation within highly specialised fields. EDM will be running a competition at I/ITSEC for pilots to test their skills on the G-Seat by flying the Mach Loop in the fastest time possible.
EDM will demonstrate its high fidelity G-Seat, which will be incorporated with a high definition visual system called The Mach Loop. The visual display system is developed in collaboration with Immersive Display Solutions and includes their VisionStation 2 desktop display system unified with an Immersaview software and Barco F50 projection system to warp the image onto the dome surface.
The Mach Loop is located in South Wales, UK. The British Royal Air Force, US Air Force, US Marines Corps and other allied armed forces uses this military range for low level, and high speed flight training.
