Motion Systems Overview
Reproducing Realistic Movement in an Aircrew, Shipboard or Driver Trainer Enhances Tactical Feed Back. This can be especially valuable in mobilized combat situations, helicopter and air crew training. Crew members train in realistic virtual/simulated environments using accurate reproductions of the aircraft or vehicle they will operate in the real world situation.
The addition of motion adds realism to the training in that the operator is subjected to movement vibrations and other sensual cues as witnessed in the actual equipment.
Depending on the movement physics associated with the real aircraft, vehicle cab, ship or boat, a motion system can be added to the simulation system to replicate the motion of the real equipment.
There are several types of motion platforms to meet your simulation system requirements. Depending on the budget systems can range from a few thousand dollars to several hundred thousand dollars.
Platforms range from 2 to 6 and more degrees of freedom (DOF) supporting payloads of 250 to 30,000 lbs using Electric or Hydraulic actuators.
Smaller light weight platforms are a cost effective addition in the mid level flight simulator and entertainment industry while larger payloads are used in motion picture industry amusement, commercial and military aviation areas.
The RealSims ProSeries Line of full motion flight simulators are a cost effective alternative to the mid range motion simulator market. We deliver all the motion queuing used in more expensive motion systems generally used in level C and D flight simulators at a fraction of the cost.
Our six degree of freedom (6 DOF motion platforms support payload weight capacities from 500 LBS to 30,000 Lbs on MOOG and other brands of electric or hydraulic systems.
We design the simulator and appropriate mounting platforms needed to meet the end user requirements in house. These mounting structures include mounting points to secure the crew cabins and display systems to meet the customers needs.
Below is a video demonstrating the build process of our mid level six degree of freedom motion based Bell 206 helicopter.
