CSTS Dinamika's first motion-base Ansat-U FMS

CSTS Dinamika has built Russia's first motion-base Ansat-U Full Mission Simulator (Ansat-U FMS). Freshly approved by state testing, the Ansat-U FMS is intended for aircrew initial and recurrent training in the wide range of tasks delivered by the trainer variant of the light multipurpose Ansat helicopter.

The motion-base Ansat-U FMS was built within the framework of a large-scale R&D project in advanced flight training technologies.

The motion-base simulators enable a series of specific training tasks with a level of realism that cannot be attained in fixed-base devices. Such tasks include taxiing, takeoff and landing, day and night (under normal visibility of the taxiway, helipad, landmarks and markings or with the use of available night start aids), fights under automatic and manual control, VFR and IFR operations, etc.

Based on a full-dome multi-channel projection complex, the FMS visual system covers a FOV from -50° to + 30° vertically and ±95° horizontally, generating visuals for an area of at least 250 km × 250 km. The system provides photorealistic rendering of the out-the-window environment, including visible terrain, moving and stationary objects in the air and on the ground, under various weather conditions, day and night, various type of clouds, etc.

The FMS instructor operator station (IOS) is a standardized structural module that provides organization, management and monitoring of the learning process. In particular, the IOS allows the instructor to set the training scenario, carry out continuous video monitoring of the trainees' actions, update current exercise parameters in-session, perform debriefing and document training results.

The simulator can function as part of an Integrated Training Complex (ITC) or autonomously, as an independent training device.

State testing of the Ansat-U FMS to confirm the prototype's compliance with its technical and performance specifications was conducted by seasoned experts from the Chkalov State Testing Center. The state testing resulted in an approval of the FMS with a recommendation for serial manufacturing.

The Ansat-U FMS prototype may be of interest to the civil customer as well. Today Russian civil agencies operate over 80 Ansat helicopters. Built by Kazan Aviation Plant (a company of the Russian Helicopters Holding within the State Corporation Rostec), these machines are used for a whole range of applications, including cargo and passenger transportation, search-and-rescue operations, aerial firefighting, evacuation, emergency medicine and air patrolling. Multiple variants of the light multipurpose Ansat helicopter are in demand on the international market. That is why many civil agencies and organizations look to provide high-quality training for their Ansat aircrews according to the current flight safety requirements.

JSC CSTS Dinamika is a member of the Technodinamika Holding, one the major entities within the ROSTECH State Corporation.
