The most intriguing simulators showcased at the MSPO
The military exhibitions offer the visitors the opportunity to use a variety of simulators.
- A rescue parachute
Altitude, search and rescue training - a rescue parachute is a perfect training option. Landing in emergency situations, whenever a pilot is required to leave the aircraft immediately, the task is to adapt to the conditions in the terrain, assess wind speed, drift and adopt the correct posture for landing. Observers can simultaneously view the same image on the monitor screen and feel as if practising with goggles. Notably, the parachute's flight characteristics and the rate of descent progression are as close to the real ones as possible.
The expo stand of the Military Academy is where you can find an aero-gymnastic device called a gyroscope; three directions - vertical, transverse and sagittal practice. The device is designed to accustom the balance organ (the labyrinth) and influence the so-called angular accelerations, such as reflection of the interaction in human hemispherical channels, which contain the endolymph. The gyroscope is to train cadets and flight groups. This device is used for five exercises by five people at the same time.
- A gaming treadmill
The treadmill is mainly used in VR facilities. An excellent training potential is offered, owing to stored programmes with various types of exercises. The fact that you use the movement of your own body to move around the facility is a great advantage, a greater opportunity to learn about the terrain and the distance a user has to run during certain maneuverers. Until now, various VR applications of this type made movement possible only with the use of a controller.
- VR simulator for infantry training
The shooting range and rifle in VR technology designed by the captain - the goal is to train infantry soldiers in a variety of combat environments. The system makes it possible to move in all directions and map the terrain, carry out exercises with specific expert skills and tactical training. The trainer has been configured for the VBS3 application to immerse in the situation as if in a full tactical training. Haptic suits offer external elements such as blows, hits or wounds are received.
- Leopard 2 tank crew - a tactical simulator
The simulator is designed for tactical crews training, those operating on Leopard 2 tanks; it provides the opportunity to learn the basic mechanisms, combat assignment and a tank driver's tasks. Fire-laying and corrections with the help of sights and elements located in the tank; tactical and two-sided fire exercises - this and much more thanks to the computer network.
- 3D driving simulator
The driving simulator makes it possible for you to feel as if under the influence of alcohol up to 2 part per thousand. The system is complemented with programs helping to improve the driving technique, higher-speeds drill and in-traffic behaviour in the city. Additional equipment - traffic lights and road signs for a user to try and test driving profiles - a truck with a semi-trailer and 3 types of passenger vehicles: L, Toyota Yaris and off-road car with automatic transmission. The simulators system is primarily intended for soldiers' drill for a greater road safety.
