August 6, 2007 (by Lieven Dewitte) - Lockheed Martin is choosing DGy digital recording and streaming technology from RGB Spectrum in California for F-35 Lightning II mission simulators.
DGy units will be in the F-35 mission simulator's pilot pods, recording everything the pilots observe during maneuvers, including avionics, out-the-window imagery, target acquisition, navigation, and weapons control.
Additional DGy units will be in the instructor's operator station (IOS
) and the after action review (AAR
) facility. Mission simulations will be simultaneously recorded while streamed to DGy units throughout the simulator and to the RGB Spectrum Multicast Video Server.
Following the mission simulation, DGy codecs in the AAR room will help replay scenarios to provide a post-flight assessment of pilot performances.
Lockheed Martin Simulation, Training & Support (STS
) division in Orlando, Fla., is developing the training program for the F-35. STS is the preeminent supplier of training solutions across a variety of segments and is a leading provider of modeling, simulation and mission rehearsal tools.
