Aechelon Technology, Inc. has been awarded a contract to provide 14 Mixed Reality Image Generator compact workstations and databases in support of the TH-73A Advanced Helicopter Training System (AHTS) Chief Of Naval Air Training (CNATRA) program.

The systems will drive the Varjo XR-3 Mixed Reality Head Mounted Display at 90 frames/second using unmodified databases. Such multi-spectral geospecific databases are correlated 1:1 with eight prior in-service TH-73A Level 6 and Level 7 and 10 for TH-57 classic training devices from Flight Safety Defense which also feature Aechelon Image Generators and Databases.

The image generators support aero-turbulence and brown out real-time computer fluid dynamics with airflow visualization, greatly enhancing the head-mounted stereo perception.

The mixed reality systems allow pilot and co-pilot common operation in the augmented virtual-real cockpit. The system features OTW and night vision goggles high fidelity simulation using its multi-spectral visual database, 3D moving models, and a variety of airfields.
