Vrgineers and DigiFlight have teamed to produce a modern and comprehensive training solution for the most survivable multi-role attack helicopter in the world. With over 1,200 aircraft currently in service, the Advanced Mixed Reality Apache Trainer (AMRAT) will accelerate training pilots with high fidelity MR solutions and therefore significantly reduce the number of aircraft hours normally required to support training individual and crew tasks.
The AMRAT is built on a proprietary portable platform designed by Vrgineers, which was originally created for the USAF. It provides the most affordable, immersive, and realistic experience offered on the market today without expensive visual display systems, complicated support systems or unique facility design requirements.
The trainer includes two separate but interconnected crewstations, (the pilot and co-pilot gunner station), with replicated switches, panels, flight instruments, and displays connected to a computer and integrated virtual reality image generator.
Currently it is supported by a leading vendor of immersive, flight simulator software: ED Mission Systems.
This novel product is the result of cooperation between Vrgineers (an innovative manufacturer of flight training simulators), and DigiFlight (a technology company with extensive world-wide pilot training experience).
