Virtual Reality Refueling Simulator
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the cost of the system?
US$34,500 plus shipping and applicable taxes for the system including a ruggedized helmet-mounted display.
What is the field-of-view of the helmet-mounted display?
The instantaneous field-of-view is 28 degrees H, 21 degrees V and the total field-of-regard with head motion is more than 180 degrees H and V. Optional wide field-of-view helmet-mounted displays are available. Please inquire.
Are graphics card upgrades available for the RS-100?
Yes, higher image quality is available with an optional antialiased 3-D graphics accelerator. While the RS-100 employs a state-of-the-art 3-D graphics accelerator that produces high-quality images as shown, the standard RS-100 3-D graphics accelerator may not meet the requirements of all users.
What are the floor space requirements for the system?
The RS-100 requires approximately 20 square feet of floor space including the space required for the pilotís seat. Furthermore, since the RS-100 employs an optical head position tracker that does not interfere with adjacent units, multiple RS-100s can be placed close to each other.
Does CGSD offer custom versions of the RS-100 hardware and software?
Yes. The RS-100 can be modified to meet most refueling simulation requirements. For instance, the pilotís aircraft or the tanker aircraft could be changed to be some other aircraft type. Such a change would require the creation of a new visual database of the aircraft. Higher fidelity aircraft flight model software could also be written. Please inquire about your unique requirements.
Can additional weather effects be provided?
Yes, please call to discuss your particular requirements.
Can sound simulation be provided?
Yes, all of the hardware necessary for sound simulation is included with the RS-100. Databases for each desired sound must be generated and real time software to control the playback of each of these sounds must be written. Please call to discuss your particular requirements.
Is software to measure pilot performance available?
CGSD does not currently have performance measuring software, but writing such software is possible. Such software could measure a variety of things. It could measure the time it takes the pilot to react to a dangerous situation, measure his ability to keep the aircraft properly positioned with respect to the tanker, or measure almost any other performance parameter of interest. Please call to discuss your particular requirements.
