Flight and Operational Simulators
Flight and Operational Simulators
Simulators are, devices that allow the training of machines and equipment, reducing the time and cost of training their operators, as well as reducing the risk of accidents and damage to real aircraft and equipment if they were employed for training inexperienced operators or for training reactions to major emergencies. A flight simulator, for example, is a device that artificially recreates the flight of the aircraft and the environment in which the flight occurs and includes replicating the equations that govern how aircraft fly and how they react to flight control applications and external factors such as air density, turbulence, wind effects, clouds, precipitation, etc.
In this way, operational simulators are developed to artificially recreate convenient scenarios, convergent with the objective, which can be training or performance evaluation. The current professional flight simulator is a complex device, with a system of electro-hydraulic actuators to recreate the movements of an aircraft during its flight. They serve as a teaching and training tool, and in some cases help the authorities to investigate the causes of aircraft accidents. They are often used to reduce maintenance costs, wear and tear, and retrain pilots in normal and adverse situations as critical condition training. Their operating cost is about 1/8 of the cost of an hour flown in a real aircraft.
Currently, QUARTZO Defense Engineering provides support for the operation of some of the main military flight simulators existing in Brazil. Among them is the flight simulator of the Airbus CASA C-295 aircraft, designated in Brazil as C-105 Amazonas, classified as FMS (Full Mission Simulator), installed at the Manaus Air Base - AM, where QUARTZO has a qualified technical staff to meet the demands of the Brazilian Air Force contract.
QUARTZO performs similar services for two other flight simulator models of the Brazilian Air Force, namely, the Northrop F-105E / FM - Tiger II aircraft flight simulators, a tactical air defense and ground attack fighter, and the Embraer EMB-314 aircraft flight simulators, which received the FAB denomination A-29 Super Tucano, a turboprop aircraft for light attack and advanced training.
Operational Simulators are, in a similar way to flight simulators, devices that allow the operational training of machines and equipment, reducing the time and cost of training their operators, as well as reducing the risk of accidents and damage to real equipment if they were used for training inexperienced operators. The trend is for these simulators to be of the FMS - Full Mission Simulator type, so that they allow training not only in driving the equipment, but also in the use of all its operational resources. There are also operational simulators for small, medium, and large vehicles, drilling machines, robots, and other equipment whose costs and risks associated with training their operation can be reduced and optimized through operational simulators.
Shooting simulators are devices designed to optimize the training of civilian, police or military shooters, as well as to reduce the cost of such training, since real ammunition is not used. It also greatly reduces the risks associated with this training, especially for shooters who are just beginning their training.
QUARTZO Defense Engineering is ready to employ all its capability and experience to serve with excellence the Brazilian Air Force flight simulators and make available the same type of support to all types of operational simulators existing in the Brazilian market, seeking to guarantee that our customers can extract the ideal performance from their equipment.
