For effective flight training, whether commercial airliner, fast jet, carrier aircraft or rotary wing, it's essential to have the right simulation display system and projector that can visually reproduce accurate, real-world runway and in-flight air scenes at high speeds, as well as various night, day, and weather conditions. Barco's display systems and projectors carry the highest FAA and JAA levels of certification and are used on Level C and Level D simulation applications.
Barco's simulation display systems and projectors visually reproduce accurate, real-world port, river and ocean scenes, as well as various night, day, and weather conditions. In this way, they offer the best circumstances for qualitative naval training and ship-bridge simulation, whether civilian or military.
For driving simulation, it is not only essential to reproduce real-world driveways. Also realistic car movements, lighting and weather conditions are crucial parts of these systems. Barco technology not only offers high resolution, but also has a number of innovations integrated that result in the best possible display of fast images. This makes them ideal for driving simulation systems.
Air traffic control simulation
With air traffic ever increasing, the demand for real-life air traffic control (ATC) training systems continuously grows. Barco's display systems offer the needed power to accurately simulate real-world runway and airport scenes at high speeds, as well as various night, day, and weather conditions. They not only offer the best color and light performance on the market, their superior system optimizations also make them virtually maintenance-free.
A complete range of services
Barco offers a complete range of products and services for the visualization market. This includes projectors, but also auto-alignment suite, screens, display management systems and mechanical structures. All Barco systems are designed with SimCAD, our custom 3D software specifically developed for simulation. SimCAD allows our engineers to optimize the system configuration, calculate critical performance parameters, and accurately predict final system performance. We also export this setup information to the projectors, which shortens field installation time and prevents costly problems during integration and testing.
