Zen Rotary Wing Simulator (Zen RWS)

Zen Rotary Wing Simulator (Zen RWS)


More Images
Zen RWS, developed in collaboration with Rockwell Collins (USA), is configurable and fully addresses both the flight and mission aspects of rotary wing aircraft.

The simulator ensures unparalleled realism in training through high-definition synthetic visuals with realistic flight and ground environments.

The visual simulations are displayed on a curved screen, using ultra contrast, constant brightness projectors that are also ideal for night unaided and night vision goggle/systems simulations. The simulator is cost-effective and an efficient alternative to train pilots in handling routine flights, emergencies and practice missions. Geo-specific terrains and equipment controls not only train new recruits but also prepare trained pilots for any mission.

The simulator can be containerized and ruggedized to be transportable to any location in the world.

Salient features

The fly-more, fly-safe simulator:

  • Provides ergonomics of cockpit
  • Supports training with night vision equipment
  • Contains realistic soft panel displays for instruments
  • Reproduces faithfully dynamic forces through a control loading system
  • Incorporates highly-realistic regional weather and environmental simulation
