Eidetics Integrates 2nd Upgrade to the Virtual Reality Air Combat Simulator at the Air Force Research Lab, Wright Patterson AFB, Dayton, OH


April 26, 1999 - Eidetics Corporation upgraded the Virtual Reality Air Combat Simulator, called ViRACS installed at the Air Force Research Lab, Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, OH. The upgrade included a user-friendly graphical interface to control  the startup and shutdown of the system, three new visual image databases and weapons simulation for standalone flying capability.


Eidetics' ViRACS utilizes an n-Vision DataVisor 80 HMD and a Silicon Graphics InfiniteReality Image Generator. The DataVisor 80 provides full color, high resolution (1280 x 1024 pixels), wide field-of-view (120 x 60 degrees) stereo display to the pilot within a partially immersive environment. The pilot uses glass cockpit gages that project through a computer generated cockpit mask in the HMD. The mask position is updated with head position as measured by a magnetic head tracking unit. ViRACS also includes a full sized, fiberglass cockpit shell with a high fidelity, hands on stick and throttle control set and glass cockpit instrumentation. This system also has a sound system and a HMD repeater monitor.
