The company has provided simulation software and expertise to help futureproof its in-flight refuelling simulator.
Paris (France), 21st April 2021 – ST Engineering Antycip has continued its fruitful relationship with aviation giant, Airbus, by providing a comprehensive visual upgrade for one of the most complex pieces of apparatus at its Madrid headquarters; a five-screen, two-person in-flight refuelling simulator.
Although the existing system, which was developed by Airbus, already had five visual channels (two of which were in 3D), the goal for the team from ST Engineering Antycip was to update and develop the content in order to create ‘more realistic’ image quality.
“The simulator is needed for training our air-to-air refuelling operators and mission operators,” said Jesus Lapastora, Airbus defence & space, MRTT / M&L simulation team leader. “These kinds of operations are potentially dangerous and very complex, involving multiple aircraft, so we need to train our operators as thoroughly as possible.”
As is the case when training individuals for any such intricate and high-risk work, the level of realism that a simulator and its software can provide is key
