CSTS Dinamika has completed state testing of a Computer-Based Training system for initial training of the Ka-226 technical personnel (Ka-226 CBT).
The state testing procedure to verify the Ka-226 CBT compliance with the relevant technical specifications was conducted by experts from the Chkalov State Testing Center. In particular, the experts focused on evaluating the system's software and courseware along with its capabilities for projection-assisted individual and group training, management of the training process, progress assessment and other features. The state testing procedure was finalized with a recommendation for the Ka-226 CBT serial manufacturing.
The Ka-226 CBT was built within the framework of a large-scale effort carried out to adopt and implement a series of advanced flight simulation technologies in a whole line of Integrated Training Complexes (ITC) for the personnel of helicopters currently in service with the RF Army Aviation.
The Ka-226 CBT will enable trainee maintenance teams to study various aspects pertaining to the helicopter's main systems (including their functions, components, layout and operation), airborne equipment test and adjustment procedures and helicopter maintenance practices. The CBT's training management capabilities include such important features as training data storage, database maintenance to track training results and self-test materials for each of the course's sections. The CBT includes a server, trainee stations, instructor operator station, software package, video projection complex and LAN equipment. The CBT offers a highly realistic training environment with extensive textual and graphical materials, dynamic models, animations, multimedia content (photo, video and audio) and 3D models.
The Ka-226 CBT can be operated as a part of the Ka-226 ITC (an integrated complex supporting the entire theoretical and simulator training cycle for the Ka-226 personnel) or as a standalone system.
Dinamika's interest in new-generation CBTs dates back to 2000, when a new business division was launched to design training systems that combine electronic media content with simulation capabilities. Since then, we have been constantly improving our CBT technology, and today it is fully integrated into our unified technological cycle for the design and manufacturing of training systems for various aviation personnel categories.
Complexity-wise, CBTs are at the very beginning of our current product line, which has the most sophisticated motion-base simulators on the other end. Dinamika's CBT systems have a unique quality to them, both in terms of training methodology and technical characteristics. Our CBTs present training materials in a structured, informative and easy-to-grasp manner, which guarantees thorough understanding of the aircraft systems and operation procedures, while extensive use of interactive technologies ensures high levels of trainee involvement.
