Helicopter Simulator Feedback

Virtual Simulation Systems develop industry leading simulators for the defence industry, creating replica cockpit training systems that are combined with Titan Vanguard simulation software to create realistic flight training systems.

SAPHI worked with Virtual Simulation Systems to build a haptic feedback system for a helicopter cockpit. The control system provided variable force on the operator based on the delta of the control sticks centre position. It also fed the position of each axis back into the TITAN software to control the virtual helicopters roll pitch and thrust. SAPHI developed a cross platform user interface for calibrating and tuning the system on commissioning at the customers site. SAPHI was involved in the complete development of the feedback system including:

  • Hardware Specification
  • Electrical Design
  • Control Systems Software
  • User Interface Design
  • Titan Vanguard Software Integration
  • Wiring
  • Installation and Commissioning
