Paris, France, 16th November 2020 – ST Engineering Antycip (formerly Antycip Simulation) has recently been commissioned to upgrade the projection system for two Tiger attack helicopter simulators located at a Military technical centre in Europe.

The project, which has been two years in the making, concluded with a few final tweaks of the system in June of this year.

“The system is based around a test room that is used to control the simulation and monitor the tests being undertaken, and two cockpits (one for the pilot and one for the shooter) that control the simulated aeronautical systems, which are installed in two projection spheres,” explained ST Engineering Antycip’s key account manager Quentin Blancheri. “The spheres aren’t for training but rather for studies and tests where human behaviour and decision making can be assessed in various environments or situations. The military call this simulation model ‘human-in-the-loop’.”

ST Engineering Antycip’s team designed and deployed the projection supports to install four Barco FL40 4K true solid-state projectors (with the aim of achieving a 210° field of view), as well as five new monitor screens for the ‘re-copy room’ where data is gathered and processed.

“We choose the BARCO FL40 because of its ability to go up to 4K using LED light source which mean a constant colour & light with a reduced maintenance. The Pulse software offers us a lot of possibility in order to remotely control & manage the projectors, and the longevity of the product was one of the key factors for choosing it,” explained Blancheri.

The project began with a definition study of each sphere in order to define the exact location of the four necessary projectors and cameras used to calibrate the system.
