The visual system was developed by CSTS Dinamika to complete an order from Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC). The so-called “Electronic Bird” Integration Research Sim was built as a part of the SuperJet 100 aircraft family design project.
The visual system features the following components:
- projection system including a cylinder screen with shadowing capability and three projectors with 1400 × 1050 resolution and FOV (53°V ×240°H), which allows full coverage of the standard cockpit field-of-view diagram;
- three-channel image generator, audio system and database support station.
The underlying terrain database contains a 2000 km × 2000 km area including three airdromes. Terrain texturing is realized using satellite photography data.
The “Electronic Bird” Research Sim has been deployed in SCAC since 2006.
