D-BOX brings unconventional training applications to life
In the constantly shifting technology industry, the future lies in innovative solutions. This means that varying customer needs, economic challenges, operating systems and training demands must be addressed and advanced so ideas can flourish and companies can grow.
Enter D-BOX Technologies
The Quebec, Canada-based designer and manufacturer develops state-of-the-art technology for the industrial market. For more than 10 years D-BOX has proven its ability to conquer barriers to the use of motion simulation through the engagement, affordability, ease of deployment and interoperability of its systems. Among other things, simulation-based training leverages motion cues to help pilots adapt and respond to real-life situations. These include textures, velocity, engine vibrations and vehicle dynamics motion.
As Military Training Technology’s 2015 Blue Ribbon winner for innovation, D-BOX continues to break new ground in preparing operators for maximum readiness in the field. Key players in today’s construction and defense fields call upon D-BOX every day to make unconventional, innovative training applications a reality.
Leveraging the open architecture simulation host
D-BOX knows that fostering successful partnerships within the technology industry is the key to progress.
Since its inception, D-BOX has provided flexible and interoperable Motion Systems for training that are affordable, plus easy to install and manage. They are also natively compatible with industry simulation software and serious games.
D-BOX makes it easy to integrate their Motion System with just about any simulator. Their COTS systems are adaptable using an open architecture software API.
Some integrations are easier than others. When time is tight, leveraging the right open architecture solution is crucial. By harmonizing D-BOX Motion Systems with your open architecture simulation engine, you gain integration time and simplify the creation of a highly reliable simulator that is specifically tailored to your own visual content.
This year at IITSEC, D-BOX Motion Systems is presenting a real-time, high-fidelity helicopter demonstration, powered by Rockwell Collins’ CORE™ open simulation architecture. The demonstrator combines motion-cueing with the high-fidelity host to produce an innovative and efficient unconventional training opportunity for Helicopter Pilot Trainees. See this demonstration for yourself at D-BOX booth #1026.
With this demonstration, D-BOX and Rockwell Collins illustrate what can be achieved with an open architecture and innovative thinking. The plan is to start a conversation with the Training and Simulation community to help forge solutions for the future.
D-BOX Technologies Inc. designs, manufactures and commercializes cutting-edge motion systems intended for the entertainment and industrial markets. Its unique, patented technology uses motion effects that are specifically programmed for visual content. These are then sent to a motion system that is integrated into either a platform, seat or any other product. The resulting motion is perfectly synchronized with the on-screen action, creating an unparalleled, realistic and immersive experience.
About CORE™ simulation architecture
Rockwell Collins’ simulation & training solutions bring both essential experience and proven technology to CORE simulation architecture. The architecture benefits users in a number of areas from new aviation product development to simulation and training products.
CORE simulation architecture provides:
• a modular, scalable and open architecture that can be used in everything from early- stage prototyping and product development to creating desktop and high-fidelity training environments where it connects both live and virtual resources across networks.
• simplified collaboration through efficient hardware and software resource management, and optimized resource utilization.
• maximizes software re-use during product design and integration that seamlessly extends into the training system development.
• a mature environment with a proven track record that supports both simulation and platform development, while providing more than 99% availability.
