Christie military and defence simulation solutions – train for today, prepare for tomorrow. Whether in a full mission simulator or a part-task trainer, learning ‘on the job’ isn’t a viable option for the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force or Coast Guard personnel.

Christie's visual display solutions for military and defense simulation allows for the repeated, consistent performance of a task or mission rehearsal that can't safely or normally be performed in the real world.  It may be cost-prohibitive or simply too dangerous to use real equipment in the real world. With accurate, true-to-world simulation environments based on Christie visual display solutions, you have the opportunity to prepare, rehearse and learn from mistakes during training.

The defence industry has demanding requirements: 

Using any combination of sound, sight, motion and smell to make you feel that you are experiencing an actual situation – a simulation environment has to recreate "reality" accurately, otherwise miscues may be ingrained and negative training may be the result.

Christie solutions help with national defence training

As your partner in simulation, Christie provides high-performance "real world" visual display solutions for simulation and training for the defense industry.  Our world-class sales engineers, project managers, design and mechanical engineers and integration experts work together to deliver the most advanced, functional, and intuitive simulation display solutions.  Factors such as geometry, image blending and warping, resolution, color and brightness uniformity, and latency are key criteria that are addressed in Christie-designed simulation display solutions.

Whether you are an integrator looking for a visual display partner, or an end-user with a project that has demanding specifications, Christie delivers application-specific solutions. Once integrated, you can expect consistent, repeat performance without worry as Christie's high product reliability enables extensive, consistent use with minimal downtime.
