Christie Matrix StIM at RNAS Culdrose

Christie Matrix StIMs Increase Simulator Realism at RNAS Culdrose

The Full Flight Simulation system at Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) Culdrose, where training facilities for the RN Sea King helicopter are based, recently underwent a visual system technology upgrade to ensure that the Commando Helicopter Force (CHF) and Airborne Surveillance and Control (ASaC) crews tasked with supporting operations in Afghanistan, had access to state-of-the-art and realistic vistas from the pilot’s cockpit.

Thales UK, were called in, and identified a number of reasons for recommending Christie’s new Matrix StIM™ — an advanced LED-based DLP projection system that provides the unique capabilities to support normal visual operations and stimulation of aircrew Night Vision Goggles (NVG) simultaneously. This advanced capability offered a solution to a critical gap in the night-vision training syllabus for the RN Sea King aircrews.
