European technology : Simulator for Forward Air Controller (SIMFAC)


The French Air Force called on Airbus Defence and Space to develop a training simulator called SIMFAC (short for Simulator for Forward Air Controllers), using Bohemia Interactive Simulation’s VBS2 as its virtual battlefield. 

The SIMFAC is an immersive air-land theatre simulator. It offers a 180-degree field of view courtesy of its massive, 4m wide x 2.2 m high, curved screen. The high-quality pictures are generated by two high-resolution video projectors. Enhancing the immersivity, retractable video eyewear positioned on the trainee’s helmet provides 360-degree vision.
