MATRIX integrates the realities of the Level D simulator experience into the classroom and to other training devices. MATRIX – consisting of the DeskTop Simulator, Integrated Courseware, Graphical Flight-deck Simulator and SimVu – is an innovative suite of flight training tools featuring shared applications and graphics. By drawing on the same powerful software that drives our Level D full flight simulators, MATRIX creates a consistent progression of training suitable for the most rigorous proficiency demands.
The DeskTop Simulator can be used for instructor-led or self-paced instruction. It is an interactive PC-based training system used to demonstrate and learn the function and control of aircraft systems. It provides an interactive representation of the cockpit displayed on multiple touch-screen monitors enabling the pilot or technician to monitor or perform all the functions that would be performed in the aircraft.
Graphical Flight-deck Simulator
The Graphical Flight-deck Simulator provides an interactive representation of the cockpit displayed on multiple touch-screen monitors. This allows the user to monitor or perform virtually all the functions that would be performed in the aircraft. System schematics and flows are illustrated through animated graphics. An instructor operating station with the same appearance provides control of the Graphical Flight-deck Simulator, just as on our full flight simulators.
SimVu provides the pilot with a detailed visual representation of a full flight simulator training session. This allows immediate reinforcement of training lessons and provides an opportunity to identify areas for special emphasis. SimVu presents the audio, video and flight data collected during the simulator session, including air speed, altitude, aircraft orientation and engine performance. Pilots view a compilation of the Instrument Panel, Cockpit Camera and Jeppesen Chart flight profile. It also provides an outside view of the animated flight path, destination airport and more.
Our courseware designers and engineers translate the software code used to control our flight simulators into the interactive graphics used in the classroom. Training curriculums, programs and course materials are driven by training requirements. Our centralized development and distribution of all course materials ensure consistent delivery throughout our Learning Center network. Our military courseware development team has developed Level 1 through Level 4 courseware. Level 4 is fully interactive and features actual aircraft functions embedded into the lessons.
