CAE simulator training facilities based at RNAS Yeovilton in Somerset, England, have recently installed JVC CCTV cameras, model TK-C1480BE in two Royal Navy Lynx Mk8 helicopter simulator systems, a full mission simulator and a procedural trainer.
The Lynx Mk8 full mission simulator, manufactured by CAE in Montreal at a cost of £16M, was installed at RNAS Yeovilton in 2000. It features a 7-channel Maxvue visual system with terrain databases of the UK, Scandinavia and the Gulf, as well as 60 different ship and aircraft models. The simulator building also houses the state-of-the-art control room and computer room.
The complete facility comprises four simulators that are available for the Royal Navy to train its Lynx aircrew for 12 hours each day.
Ken Combes, CAE site manager at Yeovilton, states: "Simulation is a vital part of helicopter aircrew training, both for tactical and emergency procedures. The previous de-brief display provided an unusable TSD image. The challenge for us was to get an image that was clear and had the correct colours. The image also had to be flicker-free.
"We decided to contact Telstar Communications which, with the help of JVC, has designed a very effective low-cost solution that has allowed our customer, the Royal Navy, to use its equipment to its full capability.
"We, and they, are very pleased with the results."
