Virtual Air Mobility Operations Training via HLA
At the conference and exhibition on “Training and Training Resources for Air Mobility Operations” hosted by the German Army in Celle, Germany, Telespazio VEGA Deutschland successfully demonstrated the interoperability of their existing Cockpit Procedure Trainer (CPT) for the CH-53GA helicopter of the German Air Force with Virtual Battlespace (VBS3).
By using Pitch Technologies pRTI and Developer Studio C++ to implement an HLA interface for the CPT, the simulator communicates with VBS3 Gateway according to SISO RPR 2.O FOM. Using that technology German Air Force Pilots can utilise proven CH‑53GA CPTs to realistically participate in Joint Virtual Air Mobility Operations Training, where ground forces and aircrews train the required complex procedures together.
Telespazio, a joint venture between Leonardo and Thales, is one of Europe’s leaders and one of the world’s main players in satellite solutions and services.
