Flight simulators have been in existence almost as long as the airplane itself. But the latest visual technology available on Boeing’s Constant Resolution Visual System (CRVS) takes flight simulation to the verge of reality. The new CRVS technology was on display this week at the 2012 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference in Orlando.
Making use of JVC’s new e-Shift 8K projection, the CRVS delivers nearly four times the resolution of high definition, a level that military pilots have never experienced in an artificial environment.
“When you’re flying in a simulator, you want it to be as real as you can because it validates and allows you to train just like in an actual airplane,” said Col. Mike Chandler, a retired Air Force fighter pilot and former commander of the elite Thunderbirds flight team, and now a Boeing contractor. “This new technology is incredible. It’s the best I’ve ever seen.”
“With the JVC e-Shift 8K projector, CRVS has taken another leap forward to allow military pilots to train like they fly,” said Barry Kuhlmann, Boeing Visual Systems engineering manager. “It’s the highest-resolution, lowest-cost solution on the market.”
According to JVC’s chief engineer Rod Sterling, the resolution pilots can see with the e-Shift 8K projector is four times better than the best HD 1080P television available on the market.
