F-16 deepstall training

Empowered by the high-fidelity Bihrle F-16 flightmodel, Desdemona is able to deliver the proper motion cueing for departures from the normal flight envelope (“deep stall”, “inverted deep stall”).

The F-16 model correctly simulates the aircraft’s response in stall entries (nose-high and high dynamic departures) and in “pitch-rocking” recoveries. The motion solution features:

  • one-to-one pitch, roll and yaw cues in the stall and recovery
  • simulation of inverted, -1G, departure
  • large amplitude motions in high dynamic departures
  • full flight simulation from take-off to landing

Dynamic flight simulation

Desdemona combines the capabilities of G-load simulation (centrifuge) with a fully gimballed cabin (pitch, roll and yaw), making it the perfect research tool to investigate new motion solutions for Dynamic Flight Simulation. In DFS the pilot is actively flying a fighter jet in the simulator while experiencing the proper G-loads involved. Although this is an effective method to train dealing with G-forces, the required centrifuge rotation causes Coriolis effects that are disorienting. In Desdemona new motion solutions for DFS were developed that are now being optimized in scientific studies with airforce pilots.
