The special ICV / APC driver training simulator replicates driver cabin, look and feel of the driver’s controls, indicators, viewing devices and instrument panel of a standard Infantry Combat Vehicle. It has been configured for BMP II and can be converted to any make of ICV.
The ICV / APC simulator develops trainee skills through comprehensive, preparatory, starting and stopping procedures, and, basic and advanced driving skills. Special exercises prepare drivers for loading / unloading on trailer / train / rolling stock, and floatation manoeuvres.
Zen BMP II Driving Simulator has comprehensive 3D CGI visuals for training in varied terrains and visibility. A 6 DoF Motion Platform, driven by synchronized terrain and vehicle dynamics, provides the motion feel that the trainee is expected to experience when he is in a similar driving environment during training or operation.
The training simulator has an Instructor Station for preparation, observation, administration and evaluation of trainees. The Instructor Station is equipped with four monitors displaying the status of system and periscope views for driver. A high-quality audio system ensures communication between instructor and driver. UPS units serve as back-up for power cut.
The Mechanized Infantry Training schedule for special drivers can completely and realistically be carried out in this simulator. The wear and tear, repair, maintenance and fuel expenditure of original vehicles are drastically reduced. The conservation of main equipment and the added benefit of safety make it versatile.
