Advanced Pilot Readiness training for the Apache AH-64 helicopter.
The combination of Desdemona’s unique motion simulation with high resolution outside visuals, offers the essential preconditions to train complex piloting tasks in scenario’s that can be highly disorienting. In Desdemona the pilots train brownout landings, low-level mountain operations and flying in adverse weather conditions. This way Apache pilots are prepared for the potential dangers of spatial disorientation in new area’s of deployment.
Motion is essential
High fidelity motion simulation is essential to train pilot behavior in complex flying tasks, such as a brownout take-off and landing. Desdemona offers one-to-one attitude cueing in hovers and landings, strong braking cues to simulate the illusion of nose-down attitudes in a brownout and large vertical cues to simulate wind demarcation lines in the mountains.
