San Francisco, Calif., May 15, 2013: Aechelon Technology, Inc. announced today that it has officially partnered with Barco for demonstrations and continued development at Barco’s Training & Simulation Demo Center in Xenia, Ohio.
At the Grand Opening, Aechelon’s pC-NOVA Image Generators and Databases will be driving the highest-end displays at the center for both the RP-360 spherical dome and the CD-2260 wide field of view collimated display with automatic alignment systems.
Barco’s RP-360 is an ultra-high resolution, high-contrast, seamless spherical dome display with a 360°x130° field of view. This immersive dome features six (6) Barco SIM-10 projectors each at a 4096×2400 (10 Megapixels) resolution, as well as six (6) additional SIM-7 projectors at a 2056×1540 resolution each. All projectors are driven by the same Aechelon Technology image generator at a rate of 60 frames per second.
Barco’s CD-2260 is a Collimated Display system for an extended field of view of 225°x60° for civil/military fixed and rotary-wing trainers. This system features five (5) Barco SIM-7QP projectors in a seamless configuration at a refresh rate of 60 frames per second.
Aechelon Technology and Barco intend to use this system as a platform for expanding future capabilities. “The visual limitation on trainers has existed for many years, but now with the independent commercial availability of ultra-high resolution displays, coupled with high quality image generation and high density databases, the training and mission capabilities for the US Warfighter can be expanded in the simulator” said Javier Castellar, Aechelon Technology’s director of programs.
