Boeing delivers enhanced F-22 Raptor fighter aircraft training simulators to US Air Force
 
Boeing has improved the realism of ground-based F-22 Raptor training by delivering the first simulators for that aircraft with an immersive, 360-degree visual environment. Two simulators were installed, each paired with the Constant Resolution Visual System (CRVS), Boeing’s patented display that provides high-resolution imagery for pilots to train with nearly 20/20 acuity.

Boeing has delivered what are probably the most advanced high definition flight simulators I have experienced, and they are going to let our pilots realize training unlike any they’ve had before,” said Air Force Col. Anthony Genatempo. “That translates directly into mission readiness.”

This latest F-22 mission training center delivery is the fourth of five mission training centers ordered by the U.S. Air Force. The fifth will be installed this year. Boeing will upgrade the previously delivered F-22 mission training centers with the CRVS as well.

Unlike traditional visual systems, Boeing’s Constant Resolution Visual System (CRVS) provides the warfighter with constant target acuity throughout the entire field of vision. Simple, scalable and flexible

CRVS is optimized for popular commercial digital cinema formats. A range of low to high-end projectors are available to meet customer cost and performance targets, including options that provide near 20/20 visual acuity. CRVS can easily take advantage of technology improvements without replacing either screens or structure, protecting the initial investment. In addition to a full 360° field of view, CRVS is available in 300° and 180° versions.

Low cost of ownership The patented principle of Constant Resolution allows each projector to cover a larger portion of the field of vision, requiring fewer projectors to build a fully immersive environment. Fewer projectors equates to lower acquisition, maintenance and operating costs. Compatible with a wide range of cockpits CRVS is fully compatible with a wide range of fast jet and rotary-wing cockpits. Its large sidelocated ingress/egress module provides cockpit access without moving the cockpit. Accommodates current and emerging head mounted displays CRVS works with flight hardware Night Vision Goggles (NVGs), the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) and with emerging systems, such as the Panoramic Night Vision Goggles (PNVG) and the Night Vision Cueing Device (NVCD).

The F-22 mission training centers also include instructional courseware, software and brief/debrief stations where student pilots can review recordings and data with an instructor.
