Tampa, FL. (20 February 2017)
Engine failures, fires and brake malfunctions are all potential dangers pilots must face. But through extensive, rigorous flight simulation training, pilots are prepared for worst case scenarios. Tomorrow, learn how simulations and virtual reality combine to protect pilots from Aero Simulation’s own Russ Shepard and Dr. James J. Frey at Florida Polytechnic University’s first #STEMTalks event of 2017, “Virtual Reality: A World of Immersion.” http://bit.ly/2l5fi6u
Tampa, Florida (September 2016) – Aero Simulation Inc. (ASI) is pleased to announce its latest contract award, the Recruit Fire Fighting Trainer Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Update Program. Awarded by the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division, the program directly supports the U.S. Navy’s Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Illinois. U.S. Navy recruits use the trainer during basic training to learn to escape smoke-filled compartments, open and close watertight doors, use self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBAs), carry fire hoses, and learn to extinguish fires.
The program requires the replacement of obsolete PLCs with current technology PLCs.
“ASI is pleased to continue to support the Navy Fire Fighting Training by adding this new program to our current Surface Warfare Fire Fighting Trainer update work” said Dr. Michael McCarthy, ASI’s President. “This program ensures new sailors continue to learn the skills necessary should a disaster ever happen aboard their ship by enhancing the reliability and maintainability of their training device. We’re excited to continue our work developing great training solutions in partnership with the Navy and look forward to our successful upgrades of these important devices.”
