US Air Force combat system to use mixed reality based software

US Air Force combat system to use mixed reality based software
MetaVR’s Virtual Reality Scene Generator (VRSG) has been integrated into the US Air Force T-1A Jayhawk twin-engine jet trainer aircraft as part of an embedded training device to provide a simulated mixed reality Electro-Optical/Infra-Red (EO/IR) training capability to the aircraft. The US Air Force's Combat Systems Officer training station at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, FL, has purchased 49 MetaVR VRSG licenses which will be installed on 21 T-1A Jayhawk training aircraft at the base.

Key criteria for aeronautic interconnection solutions

Key criteria for aeronautic interconnection solutions
Whether for satellites in orbit or along the ocean floor, the demand for connections to enable the transmission of data, signals or electrical power increases every year. In aeronautics, the on-board equipment and materials of an aircraft must be able to withstand extreme climatic and mechanical conditions, because at an altitude of 10,000 metres, a small failure can have critical consequences. In this kind of application, failure is not an option.

Metal cases add value in space electronics

Metal cases add value in space electronics
Does the design of space electronics have room for traditional metal case devices? As a proven packaging option, the appeal of compliance and reliability has designers taking a new look at heritage technology. Even as hermetic devices have been popular design choices over the last few decades, today designers are revisiting Transistor Outline (TO) JEDEC packages that were once the norm for space electronics.

Helping Collins Aerospace future-proof avionics systems

Helping Collins Aerospace future-proof avionics systems
Future airspace will be filled with drones, commercial aircraft, helicopters, and more. Several prototypes are currently targeting urban air mobility solutions such as air taxis, or revolutionary aircraft models, such as next-generation commercial supersonic aircraft. Add to this autonomous swarm technologies, such as manned-unmanned teaming, and systems for future vertical lift and it’s clear that the technology wave coming to any aerospace manufacturer today can easily become overwhelming. Guest blog from Wind River.
