In the United States, they showed footage that demonstrates what the pilot of a combat aircraft or its simulator (simulator) sees through the augmented reality system on his helmet. This is the Red 6 system, which allows for training in aerial combat. In the American press, the use of augmented reality systems for training military pilots was called "a revolution in the educational process."


Red 6 is an airborne tactical augmented reality system (ATARS).

It is noted that the Red 6 system allows "to significantly reduce the cost of training pilots in air combat skills." At the same time, it is added that the augmented reality complex provides an opportunity for the student to "completely immerse himself in the process of air combat with the enemy."

From the material of the American columnist Tyler Rogoway:

The system allows for training without multi-million dollar costs.

As noted, the system can be used for direct piloting of combat aircraft, providing an additional spectrum of information.

The augmented reality system builds the capabilities of simulated battles with various types of airplanes of a conventional enemy using artificial intelligence, which forms the behavior of such an enemy in the air.

From the developer's statement:

ATARS enables the use of virtual and structural objects in the real world, allowing pilots and ground operators to see threats in real time in the airspace and, most importantly, in high-speed flight. By combining augmented reality and artificial intelligence, and using both internal and external space as the main environment, Red 6 is redefining the boundaries of how information can be shared and decisions based on it.

At the initial stage, $ 30 million was allocated from the US budget for the development of such an augmented reality system.

Tyler Rogoway notes that the Red 6 will soon be deployed aboard 38 Squadron T-586 Talon trainers at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico.



From the material in the American press:

The next step will be the use of an augmented reality system by pilots of F-16 fighters.

    In general, such a system is good as an addition to ordinary flights, because what is created by programmers and living reality are very different, an illusion on a computer is not a real flight, especially on a combat aircraft!

      Actually, such a system is good as an addition to regular flights.

      So it is also used as an addition to "regular flights". Written like ...

        It is difficult to argue, and it is not necessary, the idea is really good for the intended purposes ... But examples of software errors immediately come to mind, even in the space industry, which led to sad results. A fresh problem with a helicopter on Mars, where it almost crashed due to incorrect interpretation of the images underneath ... Let us recall the Yak-130 where, in my opinion, 8 out of 10 emergencies arose from a smart control system ... So, with the simulator in general good, but in real flight ... well, breakthrough technologies require sacrifices.

      Additional reality is created while flying on a real combat aircraft. In fact, this is a real dogfight, except for the risk of being shot down.

        What I saw in the video, the same will be provided to me by regular War Thunder. )))) Only this is still not reality.
        Soon they will teach to swim in the sea virtually, only this will not replace reality, more precisely - until your vestibular apparatus adapts to flight, all these virtual simulators are toys.
        Flight and flight again - this is the best school. Our Yak-130, when training a cadet, can simulate live an attack aircraft and a fighter and an interceptor. This is the most optimal inexpensive simulator - the most thoughtful solution, not your virtual reality.

          Have you read the text? Where will the augmented reality equipment be installed?

          And our Yak-130 and any other can draw a virtual enemy plane in space, and not just depict but simulate a real flight and interaction with the plane in such a way that you can "fly around" or arrange "shadow boxing".

          those. real flight with training in group aerobatics, combat with a virtual enemy, refueling in the air, etc., and not using other aircraft, except for the plane of the trained pilot, which saves a huge amount of money for you is not optimal)))

            which saves a huge amount of money for you not optimal)))

            With any professionalism, the most important skill is the development of a conditioned reflex. So, any simulator is not reality, and the development of a conditioned reflex on the simulator will still force you to develop a new conditioned reflex in reality))))
            And our Yak-130

            Its flight hour is several times cheaper than that of the F-22 or F-35, but the conditioned reflex on it is correct.

              And how much does the flight Mig-29/35, Sushki cost? Or do you not need to train on them?))) How much does the flight of an IL-78 or A-50 tanker cost to practice joint actions?))) How much will a training battle with a real "enemy" cost?))) You have neither mathematics nor reflexes )))

      called "a revolution in the educational process."

      The revolution will come when the first photon radar is installed on the plane.

    In my opinion, simulators are only effective in an INITIAL pilot training setting.

      So this is not a simulator. This is a real plane and a real flight, only instead of a ghost enemy.

        Many people start commenting on headlines without reading the article or watching the video.

          Quote from the article "... which demonstrate what the pilot of a combat aircraft or its simulator (SIMULATOR) sees".
          Well, when doing self-criticism.

            For some reason, of the two options, you pay attention to only one. Then it can be like this: "which demonstrate what the pilot of the BATTLE AIRPLANE or its simulator (simulator) sees laughing

              Alexey, as Dimon correctly said, EXCEPT the RISK that you will be shot down.
              Just expressed my opinion about the simulator. As one caperang classmate said: life / service has shown that simulators are good for cadets And this applies not only to the fleet.
              Although you should not refuse them, especially since I said about the MAXIMUM efficiency.
              Tastes are not discussed, but they are discussed.
              You DIDN'T pay attention to ANOTHER "one point."

    The only advantage of the Red 6 system is the Restart function.

    Cool thing, customize any enemy with any LTH. In fact, any VR helmet can be put on an airplane and get a similar system. Only the main thing is not to play too much.
