Esterline to Support New BAE Systems Demo Area

BAE Systems in Warton UK apparently wants to invest in a new facility with state-of-the-art simulation visuals as a means of showcasing capabilities across various fast jet platforms to potential customers. As a result, it has teamed up with Esterline to build a display system capable of high-quality out-of the window, night time and night-vision-goggle (NVG) scenes. The new, purpose-built facility will be used to provide demonstrations to prospective clients.

The display system is a 9-channel Treality Seer dome and also includes a Head-Up Display (HUD) projector. Optical edge-blending is used to achieve quality blend regions even for low-light NVG conditions. These blend plates are mounted on motorized fixtures so they can easily be removed for daylight scenes. The display system also includes Esterline’s XDS RACU projector control and automatic alignment systems. – CC
