Blog: Ground Vehicle Simulation: What is it?

Ground Vehicle Simulation is the creation of a synthetic environment for the purpose of training Warfighters on how to operate certain wheeled vehicles. Examples include construction equipment, or military-grade vehicles like the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) or its predecessor, the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). Cost & Safety of Ground Vehicle Simulation These…

Mixed Reality/Augmented Reality (MR/AR) headsets are different than VR headsets in that they include objects from the real world displayed along with the virtual environment or vice-versa. Rather than a fully virtual world, AR includes virtual aspects and displays on top of the real world, rendered through outward-facing cameras and digital overlay. MR headsets can…

In our last post we discussed what Virtual Reality (VR) headsets are and the many different variants they come in. As previously mentioned, VR headsets can range anywhere from very cheap to quite expensive. Whichever VR fits you depends on your own personal preference and how you plan to use your VR system. Firstly, we…

Stimulation Versus Emulation: The Fidelity Issue

Due to the advantages mentioned in our previous posts, emulation is favored over stimulation in nearly all modern simulator applications.  However, there is one additional concern associated with the use of emulation versus stimulation. Particularly for the Apache crew training, where most trainers use stimulation. This issue is the concern that any deficiencies in the…

In case you missed out, this post on emulation is a continuation of the Disadvantages of the Stimulation Approach in Simulation and the Stimulation vs Emulation series. Due to the significant drawbacks to the stimulation approach, an alternative approach has been widely used in the simulation community.  This simulator approach utilizes an emulation of the…

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,…
