Advanced Rotorcraft Technology (ART) have revealed that they will be using Brunner’s Novasim Virtual Reality (VR)/full motion simulator to demonstrate high definition flight dynamics models based on their FlightLab software. ART customers and future clients will now have the opportunity to test and fly various flight models at different model fidelities. Brunner’sNovaSim fulfills a long awaited need for ART and its demanding customers in the Defense, Academia, and the Civil markets. “With the NovaSim VR we at Advanced Rotorcraft Technology are able to demonstrate to our current and future customers our very accurate flight models in a totally immersive experience, for both training and engineering development. Now they have the ability to feel the difference of the flight model in use. The very smooth behavior of the Motion Platform adds important cueing to the Pilot and effectively augments the MR/VR visual display” said Ronald Du Val, President of ART.
The device is presently configured as a Bell 407 Helicopter and will feature first ART’s B407 physics-based model. Other physics-based models, including Airbus H125, UH-60 Blackhawk, customer flight models, and eVTOL models are also planned to be implemented and demonstrated.
