Disadvantages of Stimulation in Simulation

Simulation of aircraft avionics to provide the fidelity necessary to effectively train aircrews is a complex and difficult task.  This is particularly true for the Apache attack helicopter. The Apache is arguably one of the most complex aircraft to simulate. This is due to its complex avionics, sensor, weapon, navigation capabilities.  Stimulation vs Emulation Traditionally,…

Construction Equipment Virtual Trainer (CEVT): Importance & Features

Blog: Construction Equipment Virtual Trainer CEVT: Importance and Features

Construction can be a difficult and dangerous job to complete. It requires the use of heavy, expensive equipment which should only be operated by trained professionals. These professionals could practice using the equipment itself, but this would likely elicit unneeded expenses for repairs, difficulties in training, and injury. As trainees use operational equipment for training,…
