MetaVR is creating visuals for the US Air National Guard’s (ANG’s) new HH-60G Pave Hawk Multi-Mission Crew Trainer (MMCT).

The simulator was delivered to Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, New Mexico and will be used to train pilots, co-pilots, gunners and hoist operators for the HH-60G aircraft.

The system provides out-of-the-window views with 20/20 visual acuity from 12 of the MMCT’s 4k projectors.

The Visual Reality Scene Generator (VRSG) also simulates the HH-60G’s FLIR camera and belly-hatch LED display.

Garth Smith, President of MetaVR said: ‘Our VRSG image generator is designed to meet the needs of military customers who require geospecific imagery for these training profiles – it allows helicopter pilots to fly low and navigate using visual cues from real-world terrain in a round-earth environment.’

A 3D environment is created using the simulator dome which wraps around the cockpit, left and right door gunner positions and hoist operator training position. This generates a large field-of-vision image using spherical, oblate, cylindrical and flat geometry to create a single coherent image.
