FlightSafety International awarded Lockheed Martin contract

The contract is for the design, development and manufacture of visual systems and displays for the new MC/EC-130J full-mission capable simulators which will be equipped with the FlightSafety VITAL 1150 image generator and CrewView collimated glass mirror display, and delivered to the United States Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) in 2022 and 2023.

CrewView glass mirror displays offer superior optical performance, sharper image clarity, and long-term reliability. Its modular design produces fields of view up to 300 degrees horizontally, providing significant improvements in realism and situational awareness. The true collimated images displayed are free of visible distortions and artifacts out to mirror edge.

VITAL 1150 visual systems feature PC hardware and graphic processor platforms that deliver greater rendering performance and unprecedented scene generation capability. Its ability to render normal rates of 120Hz with up to 8K resolution provides highly accurate representations of real-world visual environments, with the sharpest visual quality throughout the entire flight envelope encountered during training.
