Military Review

Shown is a training session for US Navy pilots at the Corpus Christi training center

27

In the United States published data on the update of the pilot training system aviation naval forces. This type of training is being conducted at the Corpus Christi military base in Texas.


Flight Training Center cadets use the Avenger educational project. The main feature of this project is training pilots using virtual reality technologies. As noted, this allows you to speed up the learning process and achieve less psychological reaction of the pilots (cadets), who for the first time sit in the cockpit of a real carrier-based fighter or a US Navy helicopter.

The command also calls "cost optimization" an important addition to the training of pilots.



The photo from the Corpus Christi training center shows one of the classes, which was held on December 17 this year. US Navy Instructor Pilot Lieutenant Paula (Paula) Ridgester is teaching two of the center's trainees, Lieutenant Andre Demarinis and Cadet Chris Naines.


Introductory notes are issued using a special tablet. The software allows you to automatically monitor flight parameters, climatic conditions, including wind speed, cloudiness, etc.


Corpus Christi uses programs that allow, in the classroom, to enter arbitrary parameters that are displayed to cadets in training in virtual reality helmets.


The information is duplicated on the monitor - including the display of flight and approach options. Data on the virtual control of the aircraft is recorded in order to then carry out a thorough debriefing with comments from the instructor. The number of such exercises before the start of flights on real aircraft and helicopters of the US Navy is not reported.

    - When will you get yourself a tablet? Or give it to you?
    - Boots are more reliable in battle

      The sixth generation will probably be governed this way.

      Here mattresses have all the trump cards.
      The software was born and lives in the USA.
      And speaks English.

      The Russian language is alien to computers.

        See movie Avatar laughing Maybe of course. But I still believe that in a military confrontation between equal opponents, everything will quickly slide to the map in the boot (in this case). Well, what's in the mob. storerooms lie, and so we know - and so the war will be fought. These are the possibilities, but for peaceful purposes ... But everything is correct - military technology is the engine of everything. So it was, so it will be.

        This is because our "elite" looks at the "West" with adoration and speaks of it with aspiration. It is worth changing this "elite" and the computer will speak Russian with the same success

        Recently they laughed: they started in aviation with direct control; then boosters appeared; EDSU; EDSU with a joystick; the next step will be a tablet in hands via Bluetooth connected to the control of the aircraft, this is clearer for young people ..
        A few years ago, a young Turkish woman voiced the idea of ​​an airplane-pilot interface, Boeing got so excited that he paid for her studies at the tower: what will happen when she graduates ...

      Have you already had a comment about kompukter toys? And what about the nuclear explosion that all these iPhone-mafons will disable?

        Even in a war in Europe with conventional weapons, in a week everyone will have to throw away their tablets, iPhones, and laptops because there will be nowhere to charge them - power supply facilities, I think, are a priority at the first strikes, along with airfields, headquarters, and launchers!

          Of course, therefore, the reserves who will come to the front by the third week will have to distribute halberds and zweikhanders, and the fleet will have to sew sails since the solarium is over.

          A lemon, a nail, a pencil, and some wires will replace the batteries. And there are only cakes, apparently.

    Yes, this is not something that we are talking about a real aircraft, here a lot of approaches have to be carried out before a full-fledged simulator.

    Augmented and virtual reality systems are actively developing. Their possibilities in the future and the possible consequences of technological development are amazing ...
    Just at the level of household technologies - "pink" glasses in action. Then lenses, then brain shunts. And this is no longer a fantasy. Our world is changing. Not the fact that for the better ...

    It's not even a simulator, something like a computer game with advanced augmented reality capabilities.
    I don’t know about pilots, we have car simulators in every military university. A real car cabin, you sit down, instead of windows - monitors. Started up, drove off, imitated any track, movement in a column, day, night, etc. it all depends on the programs that are written by our developers. Chinese iron.
    At the first - second stage of training, real races are needed to improve skills and abilities.

      These same pilots can become UAV operators without further training.
      As far as I know, previously those who were decommissioned from flight operations were involved in the management of drones. And now it's the other way around ...

        hi But there is no reason: this is, in principle, easily achieved and the illusion will be full immersion... doing emergency braking on the simulator and hanging from the belts ... wink

      In aviation, of course, simulators are used, I think this is an excellent example of cost reduction: visualization is one of the most expensive components of simulators, and of course virtual reality glasses it is much cheaper. And the chair, apparently, is not simple.
      Price / quality - the engine of progress

    The only question is, how does he see a tablet-knee pad in his viara?

    One can envy the equipment and use of modern electronic devices for teaching. The only thing that always bothered me is that any failure of the program or the device itself, and they, like small children in the forest, will get lost !!

    It is difficult to disagree with this. But the simulator is even a virtual simulator, and the practice of real piloting is still in the first place.

    Virtual kerosene, bullets, rockets are cheaper. And in the final real practice the Americans will give a hundred points of handicap.

    Well done, we are far from this. One day Jessica Meir showed me her virtual reality helmet, with which they train at NASA. no words - amazing. She had demos of spacewalk, flight on a fighter plane, training in a hydro laboratory. All this prepares very well and reduces the primacy effect in the transition to real working conditions.

    The simmers have a holiday today :-)) Here it is, real proof that their "flights" are not a toy. I almost got my flight yok systems out of the antrisoli :-)) All under a thousand hours of "flying", not huhry-muhry bagels in tea :-))

    Today is Friday..
    Shall we chat about the future of augmented reality systems? Not virtual, which is important!
    Imagine wearing glasses like sunglasses. And any information can be projected onto their lenses, any three-dimensional model that complements what you see with your eyes ...
    For example - no need to paint the walls. An ordinary concrete box, and AR glasses decorate the apartment .. Or now - they uploaded a model and instead of the face of their beloved wife - some model ... wassat

      It's scary to imagine the moment of returning to reality - imagine hitting with a rolling pin from the side and the helmet flies ... lol
      In general, of course, for the development of simulators, this is very promising, ... well, without hitting with a rolling pin wassat
