Eurosatory 2014

See, hear and feel (ES14E4)

19 June 2014

Realistic motion effects as part of simulation and training stimulate an operator’s muscle memory, thereby creating reflexes to enable trainees to be mission ready for actual field operations.

This is the philosophy underlying Canadian firm D-Box’s offering to the military and law enforcement market (Hall 5, Stand D870). As a first-time Eurosatory exhibitor, D-Box, in conjunction with its partners, has a live interactive simulation demonstration here.

Having used COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) motion solutions for more than 15 years to entertain cinema audiences, D-Box can now deliver products to integrate motion cues in aircraft and land vehicle simulators. The end result is a highly reliable simulator that adapts to kinesthetic cues, including road texture, engine vibrations, gunnery effects and turbulence. As the company explains, trainees learn better when they see, hear and feel the simulated experience.
