This is the first in a series of short articles on developments in flight simulation training devices for military, human-in-the-cockpit, rotary- and fixed wing aircraft. These articles will include “deep dives,” highlighting innovations in the devices themselves and in their underpinning technology foundations. Additionally, the series will identify the collaborative industry teams and acquisition program dynamics enabling the delivery of new FSTDs. The training devices in these articles will be randomly selected from military training enterprises around the globe.
The biennial Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition took place September 12-15 2023 at ExCel London. Among the ships, tanks and aircraft there was plenty of simulation and training to see. MS&T Special Correspondent Andy Fawkes reports.
Collaborating with industry experts, students will engage in a learning journey that includes research, experimentation, theory classes, guest lectures, workshops, and projects, all centered on the practical application and exploration of AR, VR, and MR technologies.
