I/ITSEC 2019: Treality SVS wins C-130 display contract
Xenia, Ohio-headquartered Treality SVS has won a contract to provide two glass mirror collimated visual CD Series systems for C-130H and C-130J full motion trainers to an unspecified international customer.
Configured as cross-cockpit collimated display systems, the displays provide large unobstructed horizontal and vertical fields of view.
This is a significant contract for the company and follows on from the upgrade for the US Navy’s MH-60 simulators awarded over three years ago. Sourcing the mirrors in Japan, the company experienced initial teething problems in matching the segments.
‘We have addressed and solved those problems and through the use of our own SimCAD software we can fine-tune the overall system design and accurately predict visual performance resulting in unmatched visual acuity and a wider range of pilot eye point separations,’ said Peter De Meerleer, Treality’s VP sales and marketing.
In addition, the company is working on a project that uses glass mirrors and a single projector to provide a 210x45° field-of-view display.
The major benefits of such a system, as well as the obvious cost saving in using fewer projectors, is that there are no colour, brightness or geometry matching issues.
Although using a JVC projector for early trials, De Meerleer told Shephard, ‘we are projector agnostic and can configure the display using any 4k or 8k projectors that have been designed for simulation’.
